The Clinatec Endowment Fund is now running its own R&D programs at Clinatec leveraging CEA know-how and technologies. The change comes after Clinatec began offering contract R&D services to companies. Donations to the Clinatec Endowment Fund must be used separately from these contract R&D budgets and be allocated solely to public-interest projects.
The Endowment Fund has already kicked off research to identify the top needs of tetraplegic patients to guide future technology R&D, a project on the mechanisms triggered by neuro-illumination and DBS*, and, finally, the COVEA Neurotec project. This last project applies the photobiomodulation techniques used to treat Parkinson’s disease to Alzheimer’s.
