Awards

2017 Synergy Award for Innovation

The University of British Columbia & LionsGate Technologies

Guy Dumont and LionsGate Technologies partnered to develop the Kenek O2, a small, easy-to-use diagnostic tool that connects to the audio port on your mobile device. The Kenek O2 has already been approved by Health Canada, and now Dumont and LionsGate Technologies are bringing their mobile health innovation to the world. They are establishing partnerships in Africa, China, and India, as the Kenek O2 will be particularly useful in remote and developing regions where access to hospitals is limited. Dr. Dumont won one of NSERC's Synergy Awards for Innovation in 2017.
