Aix-en-Provence, FRANCE, and Toronto, CANADA, March 15, 2019. Bioelectronic medicine company Panaxium SAS today announced that Dr. Allen Waziri, practicing neurosurgeon, translational neuroscientist, and CEO and Co-Founder of iCE Neurosystems, will join the company as Scientific Advisor.
Bioelectronic medicine is an emerging scientific field that aims to tackle many debilitating and degenerative medical conditions and injuries by leveraging the newest bioelectronics and building imperceptible devices at the microscale dimensions of individual cells. There is significant potential to treat a wide range of diseases such as Traumatic Brain Injuries, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, and even peripheral nerve damage.
Dr. Waziri’s research focuses on approaches to augment EEG acquisition for enhancing detection and predictive analysis of physiological alterations impacting neuronal health following severe brain injury. His lab also utilizes human tissue-mediated studies to explore immunotherapeutic and anti-invasive therapies for malignant brain tumors.
Dr. Brad Schmidt, CEO of Panaxium, says of Waziri joining the team, “We are very excited that Dr. Waziri will be working closely with Panaxium to evaluate and refine our neuro-interface product development. Allen is not only an experienced surgeon, but he is also an innovative thinker whose creative ideas for implant procedures are informing our engineering efforts early in the prototyping process.”
