Christopher J. Czura, PhD

Co-Founder and Chief Scientist

Dr. Czura is a molecular biologist who has been studying vagus nerve stimulation for the past 20 years. He has made seminal discoveries in neural control of bleeding and inflammation. Results of his research have supported the development of two bioelectronic medicine startup companies, the first of which recently closed Series D with total funding in excess of $80m to commercialize a proprietary implantable vagus nerve stimulator to treat rheumatoid arthritis. The second company is currently enrolling subjects for a clinical trial of a proprietary non-invasive vagus nerve stimulator to treat postpartum hemorrhage.

Chris served as Vice President of Scientific Affairs at the Feinstein Institute for Medical Research (Northwell Health, Manhasset, NY), overseeing all aspects of laboratory operations, the annual budget, and construction and renovation projects. He coordinated strategic plan development with the President and the Board of Directors, and represented the research portfolio to senior leadership of Northwell Health.

Chris has authored or co-authored over 100 peer-reviewed papers, book chapters and meeting abstracts, and presented to audiences in science, military, industry, venture capital and philanthropy. He has been awarded one international patent and has a second patent pending, and has raised over $50 million in sponsored research agreements and laboratory construction grants.


Mark Lambert

Mr. Lambert served as Founding Director of Innovation at the Center for Bioelectronic Medicine at the Karolinska Institutet (home of the Nobel Prize). For eight years, he consulted to the Feinstein Institute for Medical Research, providing strategic planning and communications expertise as it introduced bioelectronic medicine to the world.


Among other accomplishments, Mark created and served as Founding CEO of the Sepsis Alliance, the leading philanthropy dedicated to patient advocacy and public awareness of sepsis. He was also Founding Executive Director of the Global Sepsis Alliance, which, within 18 months of inception, grew to 600,000 caregivers in 63 countries.
