Startup co-founded by postdoc Andrew Inglis chosen as MassChallenge finalist

October 24, 2013

Local startup Silverside Detectors, Inc., co-founded by postdoc Andrew Inglis (PhD 2010), has been chosen as one of 26 finalists in the 2013 MassChallenge Startup Accelerator, which supports high-impact, early-stage entrepreneurs by connecting them with the resources they need to launch and succeed immediately. Inglis' company has developed a low-cost lithium thermal neutron detector that would be a fraction of the cost of market-ready technology and would allow governments to build scalable networks of radiation detectors. The MassChallenge awards ceremony will be held on October 30, 2013, where finalists will vie for $1M in accelerator grants. Read more at The Daily Free Press and at the MassChallenge website.
