Nashville, Tenn.-based Vanderbilt University researchers created the company, NeuroTargeting, which offers a database for fighting neurological disorders, according to The Tennessean.

Here are seven insights:

 

1. In 2007, engineers Pierre-Francois D'Haese, PhD, and Benoit Dawant, PhD, joined forces with neurosurgeon Peter Konrad, MD, PhD, to create NeuroTargeting.

3. NeuroTargeting's CranialCloud offers physicians access to a patient population beyond their walls, connecting centers around the word.

 

4. Patients may also access CranialCloud to achieve a better understanding of their conditions and be more immersed in their treatment options.

 

5. NeuroTargeting received a National Institutes of Health Small Business Technology Transfer grant of $700,000.

 

6. The company has partnerships with Winston-Salem, N.C.-based Wake Forest University, University of California San Francisco, Columbus-based Ohio State University and the Richmond, Va.-based VA Medical Center.
