Pure Marrow, developed a system for improved bone marrow and stem cell harvesting, was founded by Dr. Elliott Brown who approached CBIT early in the technology’s development. Pure Marrow was awarded BioScience Pipeline funding to create a prototype and conduct preclinical validation. The team was sponsored by the Yale Center for Biomedical Innovation and Technology (CBIT) to attend the Commercialization Readiness Assessment and Accelerator for Solutions in Healthcare (CRAASH) course and received follow-on funding of $100,000 through a Yale Blavatnik award. With continuing support from CBIT and other Yale resources, the company is currently engaged in licensing and investor discussions.

MindNest Health provides Digital Parent Training for parents who have children with behavioral health needs such as ADHD, tantrums/disruptive behaviors, anxiety, depression and autism spectrum disorder. The American Academy of Pediatrics identifies parent behavior training as a first line intervention for ADHD and disruptive behaviors in young children. Unfortunately, the majority of families do not have access to parent behavior training and they either receive no treatment at all or must use second-line treatments, such as medication. Dr. David Grodberg founded MindNest Health to provide parents and caregivers with immediate access evidence-based and scalable parent behavior training with coaching support and facilitated referral to a provider when necessary. Such a digital tool can serve as the entrance to the large behavioral health systems for parents who have children with behavioral health needs.
