MEMO is an advanced platform technology innovated in a project owned by Tampere University, Finland. MEMO platform bases on the strong and impactful neuroscientific and microfabrication technology backgrounds of NeuroGroup (led by Adj. Prof Susanna Narkilahti) and Micro- and Nanosystems Research group (led by Prof Pasi Kallio).
MEMO project is a Research to Business project, aiming to the commercialization of research results and is funded by Business Finland.
MEMO project team
Our team has over 15 years of experience in combining neuroscience and engineering technologies. We have excellent hands-on expertise of human pluripotent stem cells, neuronal cultures, microfluidics, microelectrode arrays and data analysis. MEMO project has a comprehensive steering group from the fields of business and engineering technologies as well as epilepsy and drug R&D research.
