It’s been quite a year for scientist Marion Leary.

First, her startup ImmERge Labs spun out from Penn, kicking things off by landing the $50,000 first prize at the AppItUP Demo Day. Then, she scores Geek of the Year at the Philly Geek Awards. And now, her company was announced as one of seven tech startups joining the University City Science Center’s Digital Health Accelerator.

Also spotted on the list is Bethany Edward’s LIA Diagnostics, the makers of a flushable, biodegradable pregnancy test. The realLIST startup is a Dreamit alum, as is fellow accelerator member CareCierge, which offers advice tools and resources for the care of ill or aging family members or loved ones.

RegDesk, the makers of a compliance software platform for the healthcare industry, is also in the cohort. The company, now Philly based, has Delaware roots.
