The University of the Sciences welcomed its first startup last month.
Enzium, a biotech company previously located in Pittsburgh, will be headquartered at the college for at least one year, according to a release. It will be the first time that an outside startup opens an office at the school, the release said.
Enzium came to University of the Sciences in part because Enzium cofounder Peter Berget is now the chair of the biology department at the college. Berget, who joined University of the Sciences in August of 2011, developed the technology behind Enzium while he was a professor at Carnegie Mellon.
Led by Crystal Falco, Enzium manufactures kits that detect enzyme activity. The company is backed by life sciences investor BioAdvance.
