The students' winning venture -- a medical technology company called NeuroBank -- beat out 37 other teams from leading business schools around the globe for this year's top honor. NeuroBank has developed a breakthrough proprietary technology to harvest, isolate, expand and store neurologic stem cells from cerebrospinal fluid, a clear bodily fluid around and inside the brain. The technology allows minimally invasive extraction, isolation, expansion and cryopreservation of these stem cells, which could be used to develop treatments for Alzheimer's disease, stroke or traumatic brain injury, among others. In addition, the technology will allow patients to store healthy neural stem cells to receive cutting-edge treatments for diseases they might develop later in life.

The NeuroBank team is comprised of MBA candidate Dr. Raymond Sekula and Sasha Bakhru, a Ph.D. candidate at Carnegie Mellon's College of Engineering. The team's advisors are Arthur A. Boni, the John R. Thorne Chair of Entrepreneurship; S. Thomas Emerson, the David T. and Lindsay J. Morgenthaler Professor of Entrepreneurship; and Thomas J. Hajduk, associate teaching professor of business management communication and entrepreneurship. As Moot Corp(R) winners, they received a prize packag
