Core team

We are a special breed of scientists with an entrepreneurial aptitude. We form the backbone of the Panacea ecosystem and enjoy nothing more than working with smart people, asking big questions and solving the grandest challenges.

PanaceaStars (previously known as BioStars) is a wholly owned subsidiary of Panacea Innovation, which we proudly started and continue to operate from Oxford, United Kingdom, at the beating heart of one of the world’s most promising deep science clusters, while also expanding our outreach globally to support all aspiring sci-entrepreneurs.

Faculty and Judges

As part of our network, we have a high caliber of judges and faculty who host workshops and seminars during our bootcamp events.


At the beating heart of our ecosystem is an extensive network of 200+ handpicked scientific, financial, corporate and legal global experts devoting their time, knowledge and corporate leverage to guarantee that our startups are on the correct fast-track from day one. They provide unique and relevant support as well as hands-on contributions to the teams.
