Academic Relationships

The Johns Hopkins University

Shortly following our formation in 1998, we entered into a license agreement with Johns Hopkins pursuant to which we obtained an exclusive, worldwide license to a number of technologies owned by Johns Hopkins relating to devices, systems and methods for performing MRI-guided interventions. Since that time, we have entered into additional licensing agreements, and we have enjoyed a close collaboration with Johns Hopkins, an internationally recognized leader in the field of advanced MRI technologies.


Over the last five years, we have maintained a close working relationship with UCSF in the area of interventional MRI guidance for the performance of certain minimally invasive neurological procedures.  UCSF is a well-established thought leader in this field.  Through this relationship, we have gained valuable insights and important clinical feedback from physicians and researchers at UCSF related to our ClearPoint system.
