WHO WE ARE
Inscopix is a discovery phase neurotechnology company in Silicon Valley, California, that is best known for transforming real-time brain mapping with its miniature microscope invention. Our team brings together deep domain expertise in neuroscience, physics, engineering, and data science and is developing radically new approaches to understanding the brain in health and disease.
We are on a mission to catalyze a robust advance in neuroscience: To decipher how cognition and adaptive behavior emerge from complex patterns of electrical signals flowing through networks of neurons in the brain. Our neurotechnologies and the knowledge that they foster will transform human existence, from alleviating the suffering caused by debilitating brain disorders, to the development of advanced artificial intelligence, to a more profound understanding of what makes us the dominant species on Planet Earth.
We accelerate breakthroughs in brain science by empowering investigators with cutting-edge neurotechnologies, powerful data analytics, and world-class scientific support. The following three principles shape our business approach and culture:
1. Science... First: We innovate and develop neurotechnologies keeping their scientific impact in sharp focus. We do what ever it takes to make our users scientifically successful as they apply our technologies to some of the most challenging questions in neuroscience.
2. Vertical Integration: We design, test, integrate, and manufacture our neurotechnologies in-house. We also train, educate, and support our users. We firmly believe that vertical integration is the best entrepreneurial mechanism for thoughtful democratization of our neurotechnologies.
3. Team Science: We maximize value for scientific discovery by advancing in close partnership with researchers. We enlist top investigators to guide and validate our technological development and support our users with the collective intellect of our transdisciplinary team.
