FoundHER – ama biotech Inc.
“Having the support of our UT community as we started up ama biotech has made the whole process less arduous, especially because, as scientist/engineer founders, we were learning the business side on the job. Luckily we had the Innovation Center and KSWEL Instutite to guide us through this transition so that we could hit the ground running. Hook ‘em!”

We are confronting the urgent STD epidemic that has disproportionately devastating consequences for women, especially those in marginalized communities.
To enable all women to be in control of their personal health, we are developing molecular technologies to integrate into an affordable, fully-at-home STD diagnostic product specifically for menstruating women.
Our diagnostic device, designed for routine use, is a consumer-performed two-step test (similar to BinaxNOW COVID-19) for use with menstrual fluid.
Our intended device will lower the incidence of severe health consequences (such as infertility or cancer) associated with STDs by bridging the current gap between infection and early intervention.
