BioAlberta Success Stories: Boosting Biotech

Well-seasoned Engineering Student Gets New Business Experience at Innovative Biotech Company Outbreaker Solutions
"If there was ever a time to market a revolutionary anti-microbial product specifically purposed to stop the spread of germs and pathogens on public surfaces, it’s now. This is exactly what the Edmonton-based team at Outbreaker Solutions has their hands on; literally. Their surface-like products look to replace traditional touch spots such as metal door handles and consist of a highly-condensed, surprisingly simple primary ingredient, salt.
Hodgson and his team applied for the Boosting Biotech Internship program to hire on a student for the winter semester of 2021. An initiative built to help small to medium sized biotech companies bring on new students, the internship program is a collaborative funding approach by BioAlberta and Innovative Medicines Canada. Through this program, they found fourth-year materials engineering student Emma Li who was keen to take on the role and expand her education horizons from engineering into the world of business development."
