ThermoMind Ltd., the leader of the ThermoBreast EU–funded project, was recently honoured with the Next–Gen Women Entrepreneurship Award at the Jerusalem Post Women Leaders Summit on the 22nd of February, 2023, in Israel. The award, sponsored by The Luzzatto Group and the Jerusalem Post, was presented to Dr. Larisa Adamyan, the co–founder of ThermoMind.
The award recognizes and supports female entrepreneurs by giving them the opportunity to share their stories about the companies they are creating. At the event, five high–tech women entrepreneurs presented their companies’ technology, including Dr. Larisa Adamyan. ThermoMind is developing a next–generation screening modality for early–stage breast cancer detection and monitoring. Larisa Adamyan explained that standard mammography, while still widely used, has significant drawbacks, such as ionizing radiation, patient discomfort, and limited accuracy when applied to young women and women with dense breasts. In contrast, she said, ThermoMind’s technology–driven solution is non–invasive, comfortable for the patient, and works equally well regardless of age or breast density.
