MIT grant for BST and CART-Tech!

Navigating the hearts and minds.

We at Brain Science Tools BV received notice that the MIT grant proposal entitled "Software development for accurate targeting and deliveryof advanced therapies" was awarded! Together with CART-Tech, a fellow spinoff company at our business incubator UtrechtInc and just like us a UMC Utrecht spinoff company co-founded by the Utrecht Holdings, we applied for this subsidy in order to integrate and enhance our medical device software development. We both develop and market MRI based navigation systems: at BST we develop The Neural Navigator for the brain and our partners at CART-Tech develop 3D CARTBOX for navigating the heart, each to administer precise MRI guided therapy. As our products have comparable yet distinctive goals, together we will be able to increase the quality and speed of development of our products, and generate new innovative technologies that will spur next-generation MRI guided navigation in cardiology and neurology/psychiatry. Quality assurance methodologies will be adopted from the outset of this joint undertaking.

MIT subsidies (in Dutch 'MKB-innovatiestimulering Topsectoren') are awarded to joint operations of groups of small innovative enterprises by the Dutch ministery of economic affairs. You can read more about this programme here (in Dutch).

Paul Leufkens (CEO) and Frebus van Slochteren (CTO) from CART-Tech and Bas Neggers (CEO) from Brain Science Tools BV are involved in this joint project.
