Founder's Story

From Inspiration to Innovation

My journey to revolutionize cancer treatment began with a simple question: shouldn’t fighting cancer be about regaining control, not losing it?


At BioSapien, we’re driven by the desire to empower patients to experience a better kind of fight. That’s why we developed MediChip™, a groundbreaking 3D-printed biochip that delivers targeted chemotherapy directly to tumors.


I’ve witnessed firsthand the devastating impact traditional treatments can have. The fatigue, nausea, and hair loss can steal your strength and spirit when you need them most. MediChip™ was born from a deep commitment to offering a smarter, more targeted alternative.


Our team is a passionate group of scientists, engineers, and healthcare professionals dedicated to pushing the boundaries of cancer treatment. We believe in the power of innovation to transform lives, and MediChip™ is just the beginning.
