JENNIFER MCCALL, CEO of SeaTox Research Inc.
As head of the startup company SeaTox Research, which develops diagnostic kits to detect toxins in seafood, biologist Jennifer McCall combines science and business.
After launching SeaTox in 2013, the Wilmington-based company snagged a federal Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) startup phase grant and matching Innovation Grant from the state. Earlier this year, SeaTox, in collaboration with UNCW, got another STTR grant of nearly $1.5 million to continue the company’s research and development efforts.
