In parallel, the Company is working to finalize its initial clinical programs with leading American institutions and medical specialists to develop a series of valuable diagnostic products in the areas of Depression, Concussion, Alzheimer’s, Schizophrenia and Bi-polar disorder. The Company expects that these clinical programs will commence in the second half of 2022.

Connolly, PhD, the world-renowned neuroscientist responsible for the Company’s groundbreaking cognitive assessment technology. With the addition of Mr. Flowerday as CEO, James Connolly will continue as a central member of VoxNeuro’s leadership team, taking on the new role of Chief Business Officer and overseeing the organization’s key initiatives in the U.S. market.

Jason Flowerday brings over 25 years of industry-relevant, executive leadership experience to VoxNeuro. His success in the life sciences and health technology sectors began with pharmaceutical leaders, Bayer and Johnson & Johnson, followed by CEO roles across specialty pharma, medical device, diagnostics and health tech companies. During his time leading these companies, Mr. Flowerday was successful in the pursuit of new markets, investment capital, revenue growth and multiple liquidity events.
From 2018 to 2021, Mr. Flowerday served as CEO for MDBriefCase, a leading global health tech company providing digital medical education to physicians, pharmacists and nurses. Through Mr. Flowerday’s stewardship, MDBriefCase was acquired by Think Research (“TSX.V: THNK”), an industry leader in developing knowledge-based digital healthcare solutions.

The team that James Connolly has assembled and the suite of SaMD products that are being built have all of the makings to change how brain health is understood on a global scale, resulting in the marked improvement of human lives. The Company’s progress with its current product for general cognitive health assessment, plus significant advances with its intellectual property and its U.S. clinical program strategy, were the catalysts that convinced me that it was on a path to success in a nascent market ready for disruption.” said Jason Flowerday, CEO.
