After quitting his neurosurgery residency Shawn Carbonell, MD, PhD founded his first biotech startup a decade ago.

Shawn has successfully invented and developed a cancer drug that is currently in phase 1 clinical trial.

Brent Witgen, PhD, has worked in big pharma for the past decade, building high performing biotech teams in the US, EU and Asia. Brent has had direct involvement in over a dozen drug and device regulatory filings across multiple areas of human disease.

Brent and Shawn have now teamed up to launch Brazen Bio to help biotech founders advance human health. Through Brazens turnkey incubator program, start-ups will have access to state-of-the-art labs, full access to $1.5M worth of equipment, including lab reagents and consumables. And as if that wasn't enough, accommodation, flights, food, and an M1 MacBook, amongst other benefits, will be included.
