Osteoarthritis treatment on the horizon of two Cornell grad students

Grad students Kirk Samaroo & Mingchee Tan of Dynamic Boundaries won $1k for their first place pitch at Life Changing Labs. The People's Choice award went to Belle Apps. Excellent presentations by all the teams, including Maidbot, Craftcloud, UPursuit, and Navo made the decision very difficult for the judges. 

With help from the entrepreneurial mentors at Life Changing Labs, the co-founders of Dynamic Boundaries are developing a safe and cost-effective injectable treatment for osteoarthritis that provides lasting protection against further joint damage.
