About the Team


This team addresses the problem in brain and CNS drug delivery thru the blood brain barrier (BBB). Using surgical navigation with focused ultrasound energy, temporarily opens the BBB for enhanced drug penetration and effectiveness. This non-invasive method can be repeatedly administer low-energy without causing any regional tissue damage. Such simple operation (10-20 minutes/treatment) can be utilized in outpatient clinics.




Completed key technology R&D roadmap, technology application analysis, planned for-clinical-testing certifications, and confirmed future technology development strategy.On March 12, 2015 formed NaviFUS .
