JOINT MONTHLY LUNCHEON: MR. ROB ROYEA CEO, CYRCADIA ASIA, LTD. – Detected
October 8, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Swiss Association & Swiss Chamber of Commerce
Joint Monthly Luncheon
Guest Speaker: Rob Royea CEO, Cyrcadia Asia, Ltd.
Imagine a world where AI detects breast cancer through a bra. That world is just a few months away.
Mammograms can miss the presence of cancer in up to 50% of the scans, especially for women with dense breast tissue, which is the case for more than 60% of Asian women. The revolutionary iTbra, worn for just 2 hours once a month, uses AI to interpret metabolic changes and increases chances of early cancer detection to more than 85%.
Join us to learn about Rob Royea’s journey from the initial idea to the launch of a path-breaking device that has the potential to save millions of lives.
About the guest speaker: Rob Royea currently acts as the CEO of Cyrcadia Asia. Previously, Mr. Royea has led global efforts of both public and private venture backed technologies, with demonstrated successes in the healthcare and retail markets, from start-up to over $550M in sales.
Most recently, Mr. Royea structured the sale of Qi Imaging, Inc. (Ziosoft US/Japan) to Dr. Patrick Soon-Shiong’s Nantworks to enable a centralized patient data domain containing imaging and genomic data targeted at cardiovascular and cancer research. Mr. Royea was awarded the Top 40 Healthcare Transformer honor by MM&M Magazine in 2016, and his leadership helped Cyrcadia to be awarded the Gold Edison Award for Top Wearable Device in Healthcare in 2016.
Through Cyrcadia Asia, Ltd, Mr. Royea is now introducing a wearable early breast cancer detection technology designed to provide peace of mind for women when the iTBra is worn as an intelligent monthly breast screening
solution. The iTBra will automatically alert the women’s physician and insurance provider to an early cancer indication and promises to improve dense tissue accuracy and to reduce unnecessary breast surgeries.
