Mihir Shah

Innovator | Founder and CEO of iBreastExam


Mihir Shah is a computer engineer and co-founder of UE LifeSciences Inc. (UELS), a start-up working to make breast cancer early detection more accessible and affordable for over a billion women that are at risk for it worldwide.

For poorer people in India & many other countries, US-based Mihir Shah has found a way to detect breast cancer without radiation! UELS is developing innovative, cost-effective and clinically effective tools to address the burden of breast cancer in places with high incidence of breast cancer and where western protocols for screening women are unadoptable or unsustainable.

Not long before Mihir was married in 2007, his soon-to-be mother-in-law got diagnosed with breast cancer. He later stumbled upon statistics that stated more than 70,000 Indian women die of breast cancer every year. 

This propelled Mihir, a computer engineer by profession, to co-found UE LifeSciences, a company dedicated to innovative, cost-effective technologies to help detect breast cancer at its early stages. Their flagship innovation iBreastExam is a clinically-validated portable device designed to perform painless and radiation-free breast scans, providing results instantly at the point of care.
