Lumen Bio LLC

Student: Julie Doran, 2019-2020

Sponsor: Lumen Bio LLC, Notre Dame, IN

Lumen Bio LLC has evidence that their patented technology can prevent obesity by blocking the function of a protein that is responsible for body fat accumulation. Currently, the beachhead market for this technology will be the pet food industry, with potential to break into pharmaceuticals. The capstone project will focus on the de-risking stages of the technology as well as work with Lumen’s funding partners- the IDEA Center and Elevate Ventures. Additionally, I will conduct research on the previously mentioned projects and build a business plan for Lumen Bio.
