Interview with 2023 TIE Award Winner NaviFUS CEO Arthur Lung

The NaviFUS System developed by NaviFUS Corp. was a winner of the TIE Award during Taiwan Innotech Expo this year. The device plans to complete a multi-national Phase III clinical trial, so the company is seeking to cooperate with major pharmaceuticals companies worldwide in testing their drugs or acquiring funding to obtain a sales license from the Ministry of Health and Welfare. Furthermore, the equipment needs specialized semiconductor components and microprocessors to generate and receive ultrasound. Hence, the company is searching for industry partners to engage in joint R&D to make the equipment smaller, so that patients will not need to go to a hospital and can use the equipment in a clinic or even at home.
