Kalen Hall always dreamed of becoming a tenure-track professor. But she could not have pictured her academic career path when she decided to pursue a PhD in biomedical sciences at Tulane School of Medicine. Hall and Leo Williams, a graduate of Tulane's BioInnovation PhD program, formed a company called Informuta. “The company builds off what I did in my PhD work,” Hall said. “We look at the DNA of bacteria to tell clinicians which drugs would or wouldn’t work. We would also be able to tell clinicians if an infection will become resistant to drugs in the future.” Read the full story here.
