Neuraura Biotech Inc., (“Neuraura”) is unlocking the field of personalized brain care with its next-generation neural data. 

Neuraura’s proprietary microsensors represent the culmination of decades of fundamental research at the Hotchkiss Brain Institute combined with leading manufacturing practices from the semiconductor industry.  They eclipse the performance of legacy sensors with 20x spatial resolution and 3x signal to noise ratio.

Neuraura’s beachhead clinical application is a brain monitoring platform for epilepsy surgery. In addition to providing an accelerated path to clinical revenue, this provides access to a unique electrophysiological data set, our source of long-term competitive advantage. This very large and complex data set will be visualized in 3D and analyzed using techniques developed in the oil and gas industry over the last several decades. The resultant data set will produce insights and unlock treatments that span a broad range of neurological, psychiatric and sensory conditions.
