TWRI Neuroscientist Honoured as Inventor of the Year
Dr. Andres Lozano was presented with this award by the UHN Office of Technology Development and Commercialization (TDC) for his ingenuity in using neurostimulation--a technology that modifies nerve activity--to treat depression, anxiety, cognitive disorders and Parkinson's disease.
"Dr. Lozano has been an author on more than 200 scientific publications and is listed as an inventor on 29 patent applications," says Dr. Brian Barber, Director of TDC. "He has also extended the reach of his inventions by founding a UHN spin-off company--called Functional Neuroscience--through which he is actively commercializing his inventions with different industry partners."
This award recognizes the UHN inventor or team that has made the greatest contribution to the advancement of human health by means of a patentable invention. Previous Inventor of the Year award winners include Drs. Joe Fisher (2005), Dan Drucker (2004) and Kevin Kain (2003).
