Join the Veale Institute for Entrepreneurship for a Case Western Reserve University Entrepreneurship Speaker Series roundtable discussion with Yashar Niknafs, co-founder and CEO at LynxDx, May 12 at 4 p.m. via Zoom.

Niknafs will discuss co-founding LynxDx, which was created to commercialize a novel prostate cancer diagnostic test. During the pandemic, LynxDx has refocused its efforts on COVID-19 PCR testing. LynxDx is now Michigan’s largest COVID-19 test provider.

Niknafs is an alum of CWRU, graduating in 2011 with a BS in biochemistry. While he was a PhD student at the University of Michigan he helped develop a promising prostate cancer test, which led to the founding of LynxDx.
