SINGAPORE, Nov. 1, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Healint has announced the establishment of their Scientific Advisory Board (SAB) comprising an international team of clinician-scientists who are recognised for their achievements in the fields of chronic central nervous system (CNS) and autoimmune conditions.

Healint leverages on innovative techniques in software, data science and user experience design to empower people to manage their chronic conditions and diseases. Chaired by Prof. David Dodick, the SAB mandate is to guide Healint in tackling the pertinent central nervous systems (CNS) issues across the globe and reshape clinical care. The SAB will advise Healint moving forward for initiatives like putting the power of technology in the patient’s hands with Migraine Buddy research proposals and seeking their expertise to value-add patient-facing content from Healint.

“I am honoured to engage and learn from an incredibly experienced group of neurologists to help advance the biopharmaceutical industry and improve the conditions of people living with chronic pain diseases. Healint aspires to be the premier virtual clinical trial platform for migraine, other CNS conditions, and autoimmune conditions. Our board members have led large-scale longitudinal clinical studies in the US and Europe. They are key opinion leaders who have helped craft many of the clinical guidelines at the top CNS clinical associations. With them, we can expand our global outreach to empower people to manage their chronic conditions,” shared Mr François Cadiou, CEO & founder of Healint.
