Professor Lisa Stehno-Bittel

Likarda, LLC

Lisa Stehno-Bittel, PT, Ph.D., serves as director of a medical imaging course for physical therapy and audiology students as well as for an administration course for physical therapists at the University of Kansas Medical Center. In 2012, Lisa licensed her laboratory patents from the University of Kansas and co-founded the biotech company, Likarda, which was named one of the 50 most promising start-ups in the world during Global Entrepreneur week. The patents had applications in drug screening for efficacy and toxicity, as well as the ability to transform cell-based therapeutics. Since then Likarda has grown to provide drug discovery and product testing services – as well as produce cell-based therapies – for companion animals.
