An innovative research methodology for computational biomarkers for neurodegenerative diseases was developed in a greek research lab. It was accompanied by an innovative electronic “tool” for early diagnosis of neurodegenerative lesions. The tool that was developed by a Greek neuroscientist attracted the attention of The Foundation for Neurological Diseases of the Harvard University Medical School and are already being implemented through a Joint Medical Precision Program.
This cooperation aims to further investigate and evaluate innovative digital biomarkers in a wide range of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s Disease, postoperative cognitive dysfunction, Parkinsonism and traumatic encephalopathy.
The partners of this specific three-year program, are:
1) From Greece the BiHELab Laboratory of the Ionian University and the Institute of Entrepreneurship Development
2) From Switzerland the startup company Altoida AG
3) From America the Harvard Medical School
4) From Canada Computer Bioscience Research Center (RCCBm) led by Greek scientists including Panagiotis Vlamos (BiHELab) and John Tarnanas (Altoida)
5) From Japan, the pharmaceutical company “Takeda“
The Institute of Entrepreneurship Development (IED) is proud to be a part of this groundbreaking research. The role of IED in this project is to develop the business model for the product, making it easy for it to be integrated into the medical market, thus making it possible for bridges to be built between entrepreneurship and the scientific field.
IED‘s experience in the field of Entrepreneurship has been acquired through our 14 years of operation and our involvement in a large number of EU funded projects. That expertise makes IED a valuable partner, aiming at filling the gap between scientific research and marketable/entrepreneurial exploitation of the outcomes.
IED has excellent experience in the field of entrepreneurship and health. One of our most notable examples is our work in the EU project called “Dental Hygienist: European Training Platform for Oral Health,” during which we developed the material and the curricula for the topic of “Entrepreneurship for Dental Hygienists” in a Pan-European level.
