  • Smart Flora

    Project from start-up Smart Flora aimed to alleviate gut symptoms through personalized, science-based food and supplement plans. Through the Smart Flora app or website, users receive a probiotic recommendation based on customer information, and a list of foods to eat and stay away from along with meal recommendations based on their microbiome profile.

  • NeedleSafe

    Technology from Universitat Pompeu Fabra able to avoid the risk of infections after biopsy procedures, based on electrically releasing silver ions from a silver coating on the biopsy needle.

  • Aniling

    Proprietary, first-in-class solution from start-up Aniling, that enables simultaneous genome and epigenome analysis for research and clinical use to advance personalized medicine.

  • Colonyzer

    Flomics Biotech’ blood-based diagnostic tool combines circulating RNA profiling with machine learning algorithms to bring a much-needed revolution in the diagnosis of complex diseases.

  • Smiletronix

  • Nima

    Project from Charite University Hospital (Berlin) to develop efficient, high-quality surgical knots without specialist training. Nima helps minimize patient risk and enables medical personnel in and outside the operating theatre.

  • SeizeIT

    Project from UCB Pharma to develop a multimodal wearable, clinically accurate seizure detection working 24/7. The prototype captures the majority of clinically meaningful seizures,  in non-stigmatizing form factor (behind the ear).

  • Levitate Medical

    A Women's Health startup based in Galway, Ireland. They are developing a novel treatment for a condition known as Pelvic Organ Prolapse. This condition affects millions of women globally and they are developing a safer, more effective surgical option.

  • Luminate Medical

    Novel solution, emerged from NUI Galway, to end hair loss in chemotherapy using a portable and comfortable electrical device that eliminates pain, waiting lists and infection risk.

  • Fine Birth

    Project from start-up Innitius to develop a device which can diagnoses in real time the false threatened preterm labor (PTL) cases with a low-cost test.
