Dalhousie Engineering Professor Dr. Jeremy Brown Awarded $2.7M in ACOA funding
Biomedical and Electrical Engineering professor, Dr. Jeremy Brown, has been awarded $2.7 million from the federal government for a cutting edge surgical probe that’ll improve cancer diagnostics and therapeutics within the brain.
The announcement was made by the Atlantic Canada Opportunity Fund (ACOA) on Tuesday.
Dr. Brown’s technology is the world’s first high-resolution, endoscopic surgical and imaging probe. The miniature endoscope will be used for cardiac and cranial procedures, and will be inserted into a patient’s brain to diagnose and treat conditions such as blood clots and brain tumors.
Along with Dr. Brown, the probe will be developed by a team of researchers including Dalhousie’s Dr. Rob Adamson, and Canadian industry partners Synaptive Medical Inc., Conavi Medical Inc. and Halifax based Daxsonics Ultrasound.
