Join us to for a second event in our Deep Tech Talk founders series exclusively to support deep tech and biotech ventures led by NYU Faculty, PhD, Researchers and Students.
During this virtual fireside chat, meet and learn from Joe Landolina, Founder & CEO of Cresilon, which produces VETIGEL —a faster, more reliable solution in hemostasis for veterinarians. Joe started his venture while working on his studies at the Tandon School of Engineering.
At this session attendees will also learn about new grants and program opportunities for NYU faculty, PhD, Post-doc and student-led teams to commercialize their research.
About the speakers:
Joe Landolina (Tandon '14): Constantly experimenting with different natural materials in the lab as a young adult, Joe Landolina conceived an adhesive hemostatic gel composed of plant-based polymers that could adhere to a wound site and simultaneously support the natural clotting process. To refine and manufacture the gel technology he invented, Joe with his partner Isaac Miller founded Cresilon (formerly Suneris), which has since grown into a medical device company headquartered in Brooklyn, New York. As Chief Executive Officer, Joe is now gearing up to take the company’s proprietary product VETIGEL™ to the veterinary market—offering a faster, more reliable solution in hemostasis for veterinarians performing both routine treatments and complex operations in clinics every day. As the face of Cresilon, Joe meets with investors, clinicians and industry key opinion leaders, alike, to keep a pulse on the market, meanwhile leading all strategic initiatives internally.
Joe’s research background is in biocompatible polymers; in 2013, he was selected as a Barry M. Goldwater Scholar in recognition of his outstanding potential in scientific research. In 2014, Joe was named a TED Global Fellow and has since traveled around the world representing Cresilon. Joe is also a former Innovation Consultant at his alma mater, NYU Tandon School of Engineering and on the board of eLab NYC, which supports the development of NYC as the new world leader in life sciences entrepreneurship.
