Technology for Early-Cancer Diagnosis Leads Bioengineering Grad Student to Many Prizes and a Startup Company

Raj Krishnan is a bioengineering graduate student leading a research project that may change the way cancer is diagnosed. His goal is to create new tools that catch cancer at its very earliest stages by identifying secondary biomarkers that are present long before tumors appear or other biomakers are evident.
In 2009, Krishnan has won three major University of California awards for his research. He is also heading up a startup company that aims to make this technology available to the world, where it may help people catch cancer earlier...and when it comes to cancer diagnsis, earlier is certainly better.
