Revolutionary micro devices use nanotechnology monitor and transmit biological signals.
Boston Workshop and Press Conference on November 8.
October 25, 2012, Boston-Seattle-Lausanne: ONE MIND for Research and Guardian Angels For Smarter Life (GA) have announced an alliance to design research projects in North America using the revolutionary GA Zero Power Biosensor and its potential for analysis, monitoring and treatment of major brain diseases. This strategic partnership will be a "Demonstrator" platform in GA’s bid for a €1Billion funding grant from the European Union’s “Future and Emerging Technologies” (FET).
ONE MIND and Guardian Angels will host a workshop (more info) and press conference at swissnex Boston (the Swiss Science and Technology Consulate in Boston) on November 8, 2012 to announce the details of the alliance. Participating in the press conference will be One Mind CEO General Pete Chiarelli (Ret.), Guardian Angels FSA Project Coordinator Prof. Adrian Ionescu, and One Mind Chief Science Officer Magali Haas.
Swiss-based Guardian Angels FSA is developing the Zero Power Biosensor, using low power nanoelectronics and nano/microsystems that harvest power rather than requiring batteries or power sources. One Mind, with its mission to accelerate the development of treatments and cures for all major brain disorders, will organize field trials and provide necessary medical guidance and feedback.
The press conference will take place on November 8, 2012, 1.30-2.30pm at swissnex Boston-Consulate of Switzerland, 420 Broadway - Cambridge MA 02138 (MAP).
“Our platform will create the ultimate smart device that will assist us from infancy to old age,” said Prof. Adrian Ionescu, co-project leader, Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL).
Magali Haas, Chief Science and Technology Officer for One Mind, stated “The promise of individualized medicine for devastating brain diseases will be hastened through this unique interdisciplinary partnership.”
