Teresa CanaresAn assistant professor of pediatrics at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine won $ 10,000. Jones Hopkins Technology Venture‘Second Annual “Press!” Competition for female creators. Of the nearly 100 educators, researchers, and investors who attended the October 19 event, Canary received the most votes as part of the AcelHERator JHTV program. Created by Jones Hopkins for Women Innovation.

Canares is laid out. CurieDx, A digital health startup that uses machine learning to enable care testing and remote physical exams with smartphones. CurieDx is the first product to diagnose strep throat, which helps to determine if a patient has a sore throat compared to a digital photo library. The screening forum can be seen by parents, patients, doctors and telecom providers.

Each of the three finalists: Canary; When Shammama sighedAssociate Professor of Ophthalmology at Johns Hopkins Wilmer Eye Institute; And Jamie SpanglerAssistant Professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Jones Hopkins – 10 minutes to present their technologies. Former students of Immunocore CEO Bahija Jalal and Landda Labs founder and CEO Melissa Fenterstock and Johns Hopkins University have coached, commented and asked questions about the content and offerings of each plus.

The event allows the audience to see the translation funding process behind the scenes, which usually involves behind closed doors and a review team reviewing detailed applications.

“We want to involve members of the Johns Hopkins community when we create Peach It on!” “The participation of industry executives and all of Jones Hopkins’ women is really positive, and I think Pitch It is popular! It shows how much he wants to know about these projects and support women entrepreneurs.”

In the United States, women get about 40% of companies each year but only 2% of Venture funding. According to Jones Hopkins, 44% of women hold the faculty, but only 11% of the founding founders. The purpose of the federally funded AcelHERator Program, a small business innovation research program from the Small Business Association, is to bring women’s entrepreneurship research into practice through research, translation, and entrepreneurship.

Canares, director of digital emergency medical innovation in pediatrics, was inspired to start CurieDx after her daughter, then 1, developed multiple ear infections and flu during day care. Her medical training took her to the back of her mother’s mind.

“I remember she woke up with a fever, and I gave her ibuprofen, put it back in, and went to bed at night thinking I had done the right thing.” “Thoughts run through my head: Is this just a cold or is it worse? Should I ask her at the doctor? It was an inner and emotional feeling that I know all parents have experienced.”

Canares plans to spend $ 10,000 on research and testing to improve the CurieDx interface, which is getting feedback from doctors.

Sikder pitched EyeLearn, which uses in-depth algorithms to analyze surgical videos and provide skill assessment and personal feedback. Spanger developed a cell-based platform for antibodies that are incompatible with maple proteins — a rapidly evolving pharmaceutical class, but the process of drug discovery is time consuming and inefficient.

Srdevi SarmaAssociate Professor of Biomedical Engineering, Deputy Dean of Postgraduate Education School of Engineering Witting, And Last year at Peak It! Winner, This year’s winner announced after doctors proposed an improvement on EZTrack, which creates a brain temperature map to help determine the source of epilepsy in drug-resistant epilepsy patients. EZTrack is licensed by the FDA, owned by Sarma, and used by Peach It On! Financial support to analyze and improve the product.

The next AcelHERator event is planned for the spring, and will focus on networking, mentoring, and sharing among female scientists and entrepreneurs in the ecological innovation ecosystem. More information will be posted on the JHTV Women’s Creativity page in the coming months.
