CTL Logo

Many people are deficient in vitamins and micronutrients but unaware of their deficiencies. Cornell startup, VitaScan, has developed a smartphone based diagnostic platform that aims to solve that problem. The technology offers users a fast, convenient, and low cost way to test their personal nutritional levels and be better informed about their daily requirements, leading to a healthier and happier life. 

Join us on May 23 to hear Dr. David Erickson speak about how technology moved from his lab into a new mobile and global health startup, VitaScan. Dr. Erickson’s talk will be followed by Li Jiang, the CEO of VitaScan, pitching to the panel of Venture Capitalists followed by a Q&A session. 

The program will end with a networking reception with hors d’oeuvres and cocktails.
