Oxford Brain Diagnostics looks for collaboration partners for neurodegeneration

3 November 2021

We are on a mission to change the way the world thinks about brain health. Our novel technology assesses brain health based on changes in the cellular structure. We enable more efficient drug development and personalised patient care.

Oxford Brain Diagnostics are looking for interested clinicians dealing with dementia who would like to learn about a  new approach to MRI-based diagnosis, which can predict transition from MCI to Alzheimer’s Disease, and has  received FDA breakthrough device designation (neurologists, psychiatrists, radiologists, focus on US). 

We are developing a new software tool for the interpretation of MRI images, pulling together current volumetric  methods (cortical volume, cortical thickness, hippocampal measures) with our new measure which analyses changes  in the brain at a cellular level. Our goal is to bring an innovative diagnostics tool which will positively enable better  patient care, more certainty in diagnosis, differential diagnosis of dementia, and the possibility to accurately track  decline (www.oxfordbraindiagnostics.com)
