Companies-in-Residence

Boomerang Medical

Autoimmune diseases are the third most common category of disease in the United States after cancer and heart disease. According to the National Institutes of Health, autoimmune diseases affect up to 27 million people in the US alone. Boomerang Medical is a bioelectronic medicine company developing technology to advance the treatment of autoimmune diseases by harnessing the body’s own “peripheral wiring” in order to manage inflammation and immune response.  Boomerang Medical is backed by Arboretum Ventures, a venture capital firm specializing in companies that improve patient outcomes and reduce healthcare system costs. Boomerang Medical is also a Company-In-Residence at Fogarty Innovation, a leading Silicon Valley educational incubator focused on visionary approaches that address unmet needs in the rapidly evolving medtech landscape.

 

Chronus Health

While many of our vital signs are easily obtained, the one test that doctors rely on to make the majority of their diagnoses—the blood test—can take hours, if not days, for results. Chronus Health has developed a portable device that provides lab results in minutes, allowing for real-time diagnosis and thus promising to dramatically improve time-to-care and patient outcomes. The startup has focused its initial efforts on complete blood count (CBC) and comprehensive metabolic panel (CMP), which account for 50 percent of all blood tests performed in the United States.

Enspectra Health

Skin cancer is the most common form of malignancy, with more individuals diagnosed each year than for all other cancers combined. For the last 150 years these malignancies have required an invasive biopsy for diagnosis, but Enspectra is leading a digital transformation in pathology by imaging real-time cellular anatomy in living tissue, without cuts or stains.
