Elizabeth Holmes, a former CEO of Theranos, has lost her appeal to remain out of prison while appealing her conviction for fraud.
Holmes is now 39 and will have to surrender to authorities on April 27 to begin serving her sentence of over 11 years.
She was found guilty on four counts of fraud and conspiracy against investors who believed in her promises to revolutionize the healthcare industry.
However, the judge ruled against her, and she will now have to start serving her sentence.
Holmes founded Theranos in 03 with the goal of revolutionizing the blood-testing industry with technology that could diagnose a range of conditions with just a single drop of blood.
Her technology was exposed as fraudulent, and the company collapsed in 2018, leading to a criminal investigation and charges against her.
The misrepresentations made by Holmes and Theranos led to millions of dollars in investment and false hope for patients and doctors.
