Newswise — October 7, 2019, Schaumburg, Illinois Minnetronix Medical, has granted $10,000 to the Congress of Neurological Surgeons Foundation (CNS Foundation). This generous gift is directed to the Clinical Scientist Career Development Initiative.

“The Clinical Scientist Career Development Initiative is paramount for the CNS Foundation; it is these young scientists who will pave the way to our next medical breakthroughs,” said Elad I. Levy, MD, MBA, FACS, FAHA, Chair of the CNS Foundation. “We are truly grateful for Minnetronix Neuro’s support in this CNS Foundation initiative.”

“Minnetronix Neuro is developing technologies that prevent secondary injury and enhance healing in neuro patients. Collaborating with clinicians is foundational to achieve this mission.

“Funds for scientific research are dwindling and yet our greatest challenges remain unsolved,” said Ganesh Rao, MD, CNS President. “Our first two K12 Scholars’ research has been on challenges that nearly every person knows someone affected by: epilepsy and brain tumors. Thank you Minnetronix Neuro, for being a champion for supporting career development of our brightest minds.”
