Koniku is a biotechnology company that is known for its unconventional way of solving problems using a device that can detect and diagnose scent, the konikore.
Koniku was founded by a Nigerian called Oshiorenoya Agabi (or just Osh). Osh has spent more than 15 years working on neuro electronic interfaces in the industry and academia. He was a robotics engineer straight out of college (Theoretical Physics) focusing his thesis on the challenge of interfacing neurons with a robot. He led a cross-disciplinary industry/academia team to develop an in vitro reflex arc for modelling implantable neural chips at the ETH in Zürich.
As a visiting scholar at MRC (London Institute of Medical Sciences, Hammersmith) and during his PhD studies in computation neuroscience/Bioengineering at the Imperial College in London, he built and customized two-photon microscopes for studying synaptic transmission in the mouse visual cortex.
Osh has been developing a technology that takes data from human smell to detect disease in human bodies for seventeen years.
