QYNAPSE and TRUE POSITIVE MEDICAL DEVICES are partnering to provide the most advanced AI platform for brain diseases
QYNAPSE's acquisition of TPMD covers 15 patents, including 9 issued in the United States and Canada, grouped into nine technological asset families. The founders of TPMD will join QYNAPSE's scientific board, setting the stage for a long-term collaboration.
According to Prof. Louis Collins: "QYNAPSE is a very promising partner for TPMD and both McGill and Laval universities, which will allow us to accelerate the regulatory approval and marketing of the technologies we have developed in recent years". Prof. Duchesne adds, "Indeed, with QYNAPSE we will have access to a partner that is already well established in the medical field. We look forward to providing clinicians with the tools they need to improve the accuracy of their diagnosis, facilitate prognosis and guide treatment for diseases such as dementias and cerebrovascular diseases."
"We are delighted to partner with two of the world's leading experts in brain imaging, and to expand our scientific and clinical collaborations with two major centers of excellence in this field." said Olivier Courrèges, CEO of QYNAPSE. "This collaboration will create a unique technological structure, strengthening our ability to deploy powerful tools to address two major challenges: clinical trial performance and personalized management of brain diseases, which affect more than one in six people worldwide."
Once finalized, TPMD will be integrated into QYNAPSE CANADA Inc. and TPMD's scientific and commercial partnership contracts will be operated by this new entity.
