Frederik is co-founder and CEO of Cirqle Biomedical that develops OUI.
OUI is a new approach to contraception that works by topically engineering the cervical mucus to provide effective contraception with minimal side-effects. OUI is a vaginal capsule that after insertion rapidly dissolves and releases the formulation. It is targeted to provide effective birth control a minute after insertion without the use of any hormones, as the mucus is modified via topical treatment. This means that the formulation only interacts with the mucus layer on top of the mucosa.
