EyeMarker Systems Engages Medical Funding Professionals to Implement Capital Planning Valuation Strategy™

Posted by Life Science Intelligence on Jul 22, 2021 11:07:58 AM

Life Science Intelligence (LSI) is pleased to announce that EyeMarker Systems has engaged our strategic partner Medical Funding Professionals (MFP) to implement their Capital Planning Valuation Strategy™ in furtherance of EyeMarker’s business plan.

EyeMarker Systems is the creator of BRAD-BIT, an innovative, portable, and accurate detection and tracking solution for traumatic brain injury. Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is a silent epidemic. 69 million people worldwide are estimated to sustain a TBI each year, from a range of causes including traffic accidents, athletic participation, falling injuries, violence, and combat. This epidemic is called “silent” because the injuries and symptoms often go unrecognized and untreated.

Scott Huennekens is one of the inspirations for this Medtech Pioneers blog.

Life Science Intelligence (LSI) is pleased to announce that Kurve Therapeutics has engaged our strategic partner Medical Funding Professionals to implement their Capital Planning Valuation Strategy™ in furtherance of Kurve’s business plan.

Current therapies for these disorders, especially complex molecules such as monoclonal antibodies, stem cells and larger peptides, have trouble crossing the blood brain barrier (BBB). Kurve’s patented Controlled Particle Dispersion® intranasal drug delivery technology creates a precisely-controlled turbulent flow that navigates the curved, complex geometry of the nasal cavity and accesses the olfactory region, bypassing the BBB, resulting in a delivery of up to 30 times more medicine to the brain than oral or intravenous delivery.
