Ellen Brune's “science project” turned into a viable business venture, one that could save lives. Boston Mountain Biotech is Brune's University of Arkansas startup that developed a way to simplify the production of proteins used in drugs to treat many diseases, including cancer and diabetes. Basically, BMB's technology cleans up protein contaminants, and drug companies spend roughly $8 million a year trying to do that during protein production, according to the UA.
