Association of University Research Parks Honors Emagine Solutions Technology with Innovation Award

The Association of University Research Parks (AURP) honored Emagine Solutions Technology, a startup company at the University of Arizona Center for Innovation, the business incubator housed at the University of Arizona Tech Park, with the Innovation Award at the AURP 2019 International Conference in Atlanta, Georgia on November 6.

 

AURP calls for submissions from its members representing 200 research parks (80% US and 20% international). The Innovation Award is presented annually at the International Conference to a business or nonprofit organization located in a research park, science park or innovation district affiliated with institutions of higher education which has brought forward a substantial technology breakthrough and have the potential for a significant positive impact on the economic, health or welfare status of a broad spectrum of humanity.

 

Emagine Solutions Technology was presented with this award because of its Vistascan software, which transforms a doctor's mobile device into an ultrasound machine. Unlike traditional bulky cart ultrasound machines, VistaScan fits in the palm of a doctor’s hand, is easy to use, makes quick diagnoses and is 10x cheaper than a regular machine. This technology greatly impacts individuals in low-resource communities where access to typical expensive devices and a lack of ultrasound imaging can negatively affect how patients are triaged and treated.

 

Courtney Williams, CEO & Co-founder of Emagine Solutions Technology, said “We’re extremely grateful to have received this award. Receiving national recognition elevates our company and exposes us to new opportunities. Both the University of Arizona Center for Innovation and Tech Parks Arizona have assisted in moving our company forward by providing access to experts in the field, including mentors and business experts that have helped us understand how to overcome obstacles as entrepreneurs and to be able to push our ideas and innovations forward into the marketplace.”

 

The University of Arizona Tech Park is a long-standing member of AURP and was honored with the Outstanding Research Park Award in 2001. The University of Arizona Tech Park is one of the nation's premier research parks – a dynamic, interactive community where innovators and business leaders meet, where emerging companies and technology giants work side by side. Located in one of Arizona’s fast-growing suburban settings on Tucson’s southeast side, the Park’s spacious campus encompasses 1,287 acres and has 2 million square feet of space for high-tech offices, R&D and laboratory facilities.

 

The AURP 2019 International Conference is a flagship innovation conference for professionals to gather from around the globe to connect and collaborate. Designed to advance new ideas at interactive sessions with C-suite executives, the conference features a diverse range of learning content such as collaborative sessions, intensive discussions, learning tours and more, covering topics that build core competencies for accelerating innovation through people, programs and places.
