Life Science Founder Stories

The Founder journey is never an easy, linear path, and for life science founders, it is loaded with more challenges and uncertainty. The journey is usually ignited with a passion-driven mission paired with many successes and even more failures along the way. 

Join us for Life Science Founder Stories where you will hear from 3 local, life science founders currently incubating at ULP. We will get candid and honest, but the stories will not fail to inspire.

Happy hour menu will be served alongside cocktails/mocktails.

Louay Omarron

Louay Fakhro


As a seasoned engineer in the electronic design and manufacturing space, I have always been motivated to use my skills to create a positive impact on society. During my time as a core member of a design team at a medical device company, I had the privilege of designing and developing impactful medical devices that are now helping patients around the world.

However, a family health scare prompting a lifestyle change, I took my passion for healthcare innovation to the next level. With the support of my wife, Hiba, and our friend Brian, we founded Omaroon, a startup dedicated to bridging the healthcare gap for individuals with rare diseases. We firmly believe that every life is of equal value, and it is unacceptable for individuals with rare diseases to be deprived of quality healthcare simply because of a smaller market.

At Omaroon, we use our skills and expertise to develop innovative solutions for orphan diseases, starting with PKU, ensuring that these individuals receive the same level of care as those with more common conditions. We are fueled by our passion to make a difference in the lives of those who are often overlooked in the healthcare industry, and we are proud to be part of a larger movement dedicated to creating positive change in the world.
