Now based between the Texas Medical Center at Houston, San Francisco Bay Area and Melbourne, CNSdose began their journey at the Melbourne Accelerator Program (MAP) in 2016. At MAP they raised a $ 1 m Angel Round to make their vision a reality, building their personalised medicine company that uses advanced genetic testing to fast-track correct medication diagnosis across a patient's lifespan.
Soon after it completing the MAP they were accepted into the Australian Government’s Bio-Bridge Initiative, a collaboration with the Texas Medical Center (TMC), which helps Australian medical entrepreneurs work within the world’s biggest medical precinct, the centre also selected CNSdose as a participant in their TMCx program, which provides facilities for health-related research and development. CNSdose is also a TMC Venture Fund Portfolio Company.
CNSdose technologies have since been adopted in a number of eminent academic health centres, including the University of Texas Physicians, and approximately 500 clinics across the US, Australia and New Zealand such as the Albert Road Clinic and The Melbourne Clinic.
In 2020, CNSdose launched their new tool - Amplis™ Evo - which helps physicians to personalise prescriptions. With genetic guidance that assesses multiple patient factors – including mental health issues – doctors should be able to reduce the risks of adverse medical reactions, select the optimal first-time treatment and avoid polypharmacy issues in elderly patients.
Following successful clinical trials, the CNSdose tool is now gaining traction among multiple medical specialities, including primary care psychiatry, geriatrics and neurology, and is now focusing on replicating it’s US and Australian market success in the Asia Pacific. More large-scale validation projects are soon to begin in Australia.
