Cupris Health Ltd
Category: Sprout
Category: Seedling
Category: Pollen
The management team is led by Jeff Valk, Chief Executive Officer, a seasoned leader of highly technical organizations, and a hardware and software engineer specializing in design of adaptive systems. Research and clinical operations are headed by Dr. Tim Valk, Chief Scientist, a board certified endocrinologist, researcher, and former professor with over 25 years in clinical practice. Cupris was founded by Jules Hamann , a Consultant ENT Surgeon, and Paul Thomas , an award-winning designer and entrepreneur, to develop medical devices that exploit smartphone technology to improve healthcare communication. Jules felt that a significant proportion of the patients he saw in clinic could be cared for without coming to see him in person. VisusNano Ltd. is a privately held pre-clinical company developing a drug-eluting intraocular lens implant, for use in patients undergoing cataract surgery. By improving patient outcomes, obviating the need for eye drops after surgery, and avoiding the need for laser treatment after surgery, our project has the potential to revolutionise cataract surgery in both the human and veterinary markets.
