NeuroCog Trials has also significantly grown its in-house software development team due to the success of their proprietary cognitive and functional assessment tools, the iPad-based BAC App (Brief Assessment of Cognition App) and VRFCAT (Virtual Reality Functional Capacity Assessment Tool). The BAC App and VRFCAT NIH Grant projects, led by co-principal investigators Alexandra Atkins, Ph.D. and Richard Keefe, Ph.D., encompass a multi-year trial that will be conducted at NeuroCog Trials, with participants visiting the headquarters to perform on clinical assessments.
Richard Keefe, Ph.D., Founder, and Chief Executive Officer of NeuroCog Trials, said
"We are excited about getting more talent on board as we have broadened our expertise from schizophrenia to other therapeutic areas such as Alzheimer's Disease, Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI), multiple sclerosis, depression, and high-risk for psychosis. The BAC App and VRFCAT have been very well-received and are now being used as endpoints in multiple clinical trials, which necessitated additional capacity for our software development, scientific, and linguistics teams. Expanding our talent base and workspace positions us well for further growth of our domestic and global footprint."
