Lakehead University launched more than Research and Innovation Week at the opening ceremony held on Friday, March 3. A joint venture between Lakehead University and the Thunder Bay Regional Health Research Institute, called Radialis, was also launched, and so was the new Centre for Innovation and Entrepreneurship Research. Radialis is partnering with the Centre for Imaging Technology Commercialization (CIMTEC), to design, manufacture, and sell advanced imaging systems from Thunder Bay. A high-resolution Positron Emission Mammography (PEM) system for low-dose imaging of breast cancer will be the first product from Radialis.
“We launched Radialis Medical to commercialize our PEM technology and to bring it to clinical trials at the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre, which will help save lives and put Thunder Bay on the cutting edge of healthcare,” said Dr. Alla Reznik, Radialis’ Chief Scientific Officer.
