Charleston ENT & Allergy’s motto, “Better care in every sense,” extends to the greater community. As always, our practice supports cultivating new ideas and technological advances supporting companies making great strides in health care.
Just recently, Charleston ENT & Allergy supported technology innovation throughout the state with a diamond level donation ($200,000) to the South Carolina Research Authority’s (SCRA) Industry Partnership Fund (IPF). Since 2006, the IPF has provided grants to accelerate technology growth in research, academia, entrepreneurship, and industry.
What This Means for Our Community
Furthering the innovation economy fosters ideas and technology innovation, which leads to state-of-the-art technology and higher-paying jobs.
“We are proud to support the innovative ideas that lead to positive changes in our community,” said Eugene Brown, M.D. and Physician President of Charleston ENT & Allergy. “Through the IPF, we not only gain new technologies that better our resources as a healthcare provider, but we are helping to strengthen the economic impact.”
Recent grants from IPF have helped Heartbeat Technologies build a device called “The SAVER” to improve cardiac arrest outcomes. Through IPF a Charleston-based startup, Arista Orthopedics is developing medical devices to treat joint disease. New super-efficient viral particle isolation kits from Victory Exofibres LLC allow for more efficient medical diagnostic testing with the help of grant funding.
