Great news at Aortyx! Our CTO, Noemí Balà has successfully defended her doctoral thesis titled “Development of a bioresorbable patch to treat aortic dissection”. She has developed her thesis at the “Department of Chemical Engineering and Materials Science” at IQS School of Engineering. Noemí began developing the first prototypes of the patch during her master thesis, which was the initial proof of concept that has evolved to become the TRL 6 device that Aortyx is developing nowadays.

Noemí’s PhD has been co-directed by Dr. Jordi Martorell, CEO of Aortyx and coordinator of the GEVAB group (Vascular Engineering and Applied Biomedicine Group) and Dr. Salvador Borrós, CSO of Aortyx and coordinator of the GEMAT group (Materials Engineering Group). Together with Dr. Vicenç Riambau, Noemí, Jordi and Salvador co-founded Aortyx in 2018, right after Noemí started her PhD. 4 years later it is time to celebrate this important event and keep up the good work to get to the aortic dissection community the solution that they deserve!

Stay tuned, and do not miss the opportunity to know better Aortyx, and Noemí, as she will be presenting our project in the 2nd Annual Innovation in Vascular Surgery & Endovascular Therapies Award Webinar Friday 27th of May at 18:00 (GMT +2).
