Benjy Cooper: Kickstarting a Biotech Startup Thanks to Lean Launchpad

Benjy Cooper has long had a vision to help patients with osteoarthritis gain greater mobility and improve their quality of life. As a doctoral student at Boston University, he helped develop a biolubricant that mimics the fluids in our joints, which, when injected, restores joints’ flexibility and patients’ freedom of movement. Now, thanks to Brandeis Innovation’s Lean LaunchPad program, he has launched a company, Articulate Biosciences, aimed at doing just that.
