Over the past fifteen years, the founders of TPMD, Prof. Louis Collins (mcgill university, Montreal, Canada) and Prof. Simon duchesne (University Laval, Quebec, Canada) have established one of the most impressive scientific and technological asset bases in brain imaging and applied AI to this field, supported by more than 500 scientific publications and communications. These technologies are already used in Canada by leading research consortia and international private actors in studies specifically related to neurodegeneration, such as Alzheimer’s disease.

QYNAPSE is already marketing its first QyScore medical device to clinical centers in L’Europe  and United States. Its platform is also used in clinical trials involving dozens of centers around the world. The collaboration with TPMD will allow QYNAPSE to extend the applications of its QyScore software to other brain diseases such as stroke, epilepsy, autism, schizophrenia and head trauma – and also to develop a new software to predict the clinical progression of each patient and optimize recruitment in clinical trials.
The acquisition of TPMD by QYNAPSE covers 15 patents, including 9 issued in United States and Canada, grouped into nine families of technological assets. The founders of TPMD will join the scientific board of QYNAPSE, paving the way for a long-term collaboration.
