Give patients hope
We are convinced that NETRI’s expertise can bring hope to patients with neurological diseases
by inventing innovative and high-end technologies and services, that are not yet available on the market.
New and disruptive approaches can be invented, through :
at NETRI, we know that we can change the way neurological diseases are treated, by acting and thinking differently.
We are committed to
- Increasing discoveries on the brain and neurology
- Contributing to the invention of new, personalized, and relevant disruptive treatment approaches
- Speeding up the market entry of these approaches
- And finally, alleviating the suffering of patients and their relatives
Our strategic priorities
Our technology enables us to meet the needs of all patients with neurological disorders.
NETRI has chosen to focus on 2 major global diseases and epidemics :
Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases
We believe these major disabling neurological disorders need an urgent response and are therefore our top strategic investment priorities.
We are comited to continuously investing in research programs to
- Develop new in vitro models and demonstrate their physiological relevance: neurofluidic models of Alzheimer’s and Parkison’s diseases and their injuries, degeneration of Lewy body, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), Frontotemporal Lobar Degeneration (FLD), gut-brain axis and innervated epidermis
- Develop Standard Operating Protocols (SOP) for human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPScs) and patient-derived iPSCs differentiated neurons in our neurofluidic devices
- Develop the first in vitro differential diagnostic medical device for neurological troubles, in collaboration with Lyon’s Hospital
- Seeking partners for joint development with pharmaceutical industrials
We believe that the combination of patient-derived iPSCs and
neurofluidic technologies fully captures the human brain physiology.
Animal experiments have recognized limited predictivity on recreating human biology and have raised ethical issues over time. NETRI’s technologies provide new ways to improve drug development, toxicology studies and identify effective treatments for neurological disorders.
