As Vice-President of Product and Lead Scientist at HealthTech Connex Inc., Bimal Lakhani leads the translation of research into advanced neurotechnologies and medical devices. Passionate about brain structure, neuroplasticity, and neurorehabilitation, he brings more than a decade of experience in academic research and development to the team – including a B.Sc. in Kinesiology from the University of Waterloo, M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in Rehabilitation Science from the University of Toronto, and a Post-Doctoral Fellowship at the University of British Columbia’s Brain Behaviour Lab.
In his current role, Bimal works closely with scientists, clinicians, engineers, and industry partners to apply research findings and develop novel techniques, products and practices for global impact in brain assessments. This includes strategic, tactical, and operational planning, product development, device rollout management, and implementation of intellectual property guidelines and quality assurance programs.
Complimentary to his skills in knowledge translation and product development, Bimal is also known around the office for his love of sports, music and cheeseburgers – when he’s not immersed the latest brain research, you are likely to find him cheering on all Toronto based sports teams (Go Leafs and Raptors!) and wandering around the city critiquing which restaurant has the best burger patty to bun ratio.
