Entrepreneurship and Community Engagement
MCsquared scientists conduct major research contracts with local industries, including Syngenta and Proctor and Gamble. These contracts foster collaborations with industry, facilitate job placement for trainees, and stimulate economic growth. Our scientists also are engaged in major entrepreneurial efforts. For example, Dr. Sherri McFarland, through her startup Theralase, has developed a bladder cancer drug that is currently undergoing clinical trials, and Drs. Nicholas Oberlies and Cedric Pearce (Mycosynthetix, Inc.) are engaged with various collaborative projects stemming out of their long time working relationship and connections with the Research Triangle area of North Carolina and beyond.
