BALTIMORE, MD, OCT. 29, 2021 – The University of Maryland BioPark (UM BioPark) today announced that JuneBrain Inc., a telehealth device company that empowers ophthalmology and neurology communities, joined the UM BioPark as its newest tenant. JuneBrain, a Maryland-based company, is located in the BioPark’s innovation space in the Lion Brothers Building on Hollins Street.
“We are delighted to welcome JuneBrain to our tenant community,” said Jane Shaab, executive director of the UM BioPark. “The BioPark is an ideal fit for emerging technology companies seeking pre-built space to grow. By fostering unique opportunities and connections, we provide a supportive environment that helps companies thrive at any stage in their development.”
“We chose to move our headquarters to the UM BioPark because our primary partners are located in the Baltimore area and being in close proximity to them is very important during the next phase of our growth,” said JuneBrain Chief Executive Officer and Founder Samantha Scott, PhD. “With the University of Maryland, Baltimore, Johns Hopkins University, and a growing local startup ecosystem in its backyard, the BioPark provides ‘fertile soil’ for JuneBrain to expand.”
Dr. Scott’s passion for brain research and developing technologies that empower patients, combined with her own experience as a neurology patient, is the driving force behind JuneBrain. By creating an easy-to-use, telehealth eye-scanning system, they are providing clinicians with a means to detect and treat disease in patients outside of the clinic more quickly. Early detection and treatment are crucial to slowing disease progression and disability, but clinicians have limited time and tools to monitor and detect these diseases between visits.
JuneBrain is developing an eye scanning telehealth solution that allows providers to more frequently and remotely detect and monitor disease progression in patients with eye and brain disease. With over 1.3 billion individuals worldwide suffering from retinal and neurological conditions, JuneBrain solves these problems at scale, outside of traditional clinical settings.
JuneBrain Inc., was founded with the vision of empowering the ophthalmology and neurology communities through remote monitoring of eye and brain health. Their mission begins with age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and multiple sclerosis (MS)—degenerative diseases that impact a combined 15 million patients in the United States. Located in Baltimore, MD, JuneBrain includes a team of biomedical engineers, neurologists, and optometrists and works in collaboration with Johns Hopkins University.
