Company Summary

We are commercializing a therapy discovered at Columbia University for brain swelling after severe traumatic brain injury . Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is the most common cause of death among young people in the developed world. Many TBI patients make it to hospital alive and leave dead, usually because their brain swelled. Doctors want a better tool to help these patients. We plan to provide it.

    Founder

    I came to the USA from Ireland in 2001 because I wanted to prevent brain injuries. I got a PhD in biomedical engineering at Duke, studying helmet biomechanics and cell swelling phenomena. Then I came to Columbia to work on brain injury therapy. Somewhere along the way, I won a BMW from Motorola by suggesting a novel cell phone technology.
