Ozgun Ceren Avincsal, a student at the University of Salford, has embarked on an ambitious journey to reshape the landscape of BioTech consultancy.

Currently pursuing her MSc in Biotechnology, Ceren Avincsal founded Healium Health Limited to simplify the process for those keen on establishing clinics or laboratories and ensuring their smooth accreditation. 

With the help of Launch@ Salford – Salford Business School’s purpose-built incubation space – this mission is steadily becoming a reality.

Launch is designed to support Salford students and graduates through the startup phase of their business journeys, providing the physical space for budding entrepreneurs to share ideas with like-minded people, organise meetings and seek crucial support from industry experts.

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, the critical significance of biotechnology became even more apparent. Recognising this pivotal moment, Ceren Avincsal strategically diversified Healium Health’s supply chain for lab consumables, establishing a connection between Turkey and the UK. This move not only ensured the delivery of high-quality products but also emphasised cost-effectiveness and affordability for consumers.

“Our collaboration with Launch@ Salford has been pivotal for Healium Health’s progression,” said Ceren Avincsal. “Their consistent support, paired with their insightful business mentoring, has magnified our potential. Their skill in connecting us with the right resources has been invaluable to our journey.”

In recognition of her forward-thinking and innovative contributions to the BioTech sector, Ceren Avincsal was honoured with the prestigious Santander UK Universities award.

She is now considering the possibility of establishing a dedicated diagnostic or research lab in the UK, aiming to strengthen Healium Health’s foothold in BioTech consultancy.

Paul Little, incubation manager at Launch@ Salford, remarked: “Ozgun stands as a shining example of the entrepreneurial determination and innovative vision we champion at Salford Business School. 

“Her dedication to revolutionising BioTech consultancy, coupled with her relentless pursuit to provide accessible, high-quality lab consumables, underscores the transformative potential our alumni bring to their respective fields.”
