Examples of faculty start ups

Examples of Faculty Start-ups

  • Extreme Photonics (solid-state display)

  • Apologic (develops drugs for Apo-E related diseases, e.g., Alzheimer’s)

  • CardioEnergetics (mechanical devices for treating heart failure)

  • Cutanogen (skin substitutes)

  • Allergenics (oral vaccines)

  • Phase 2 Discovery (develops drugs for treating psychiatric and neurologic disorders)

  • Intracellular (cellular imaging instruments)


Extreme photonics

"Extreme" Engineering Innovation Launches High-tech FirmAn idea born in the labs of Ohio Eminent Scholar Andrew Steckl led to the birth of Cincinnati's newest high-tech company -- Extreme Photonix. The company was started by Steckl, Gieringer Professor of Solid State Microelectronics in the electrical and computer engineering and computer science department. Research Corporation Technologies (RCT) of Tuscon, Ariz., recently announced it would support the company's research and development so prototype products can be made.
