Blackhawk Growth Appoints New Advisor to Support Expansion into Psychedelics And Mental Health Treatments
Vancouver, British Columbia – TheNewswire – October 14, 2021 – Blackhawk Growth Corp. (CSE:BLR) (CNSX:BLR.CN) (Frankfurt:0JJ) (the “Company” or “Blackhawk”) is pleased to announce that Dr. Lahiru Russell from Digital Mind Technology has been appointed as a medical advisor to Blackhawk.
Dr. Russell, with over 10 years of experience in clinical trials and research in psycho-oncology, is developing a platform for mindfulness-based interventions to promote self-regulation of emotions and thoughts to reduce negative mental health conditions.
Dr. Russell has transferred all her relevant intellectual property to Digital Mind Technology including proven clinical tools (developed from clinical research with 69 patients diagnosed with advanced stage Melanoma), for actively engaging and treating patients to help cope with the negative mental health outcomes of their illness. MindBio currently has a commercialization agreement with Digital Mind Technology.
In addition, MindBio is planning to implement Google Cloud’s “Health Care Solutions” for its international clinical trials to better manage clinical trials and analysis of data for drug development.
Google has developed cloud solutions that can help accelerate drug development and clinical trials to bring therapies to patients faster. With the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) MyStudies Application integration, the Google Cloud uses mobile tools to recruit, enroll, and engage with patients, collecting data directly from participants in a regulatory-compliant manner.
MindBio’s partner, Digital Mind Technology, will provide consulting services to MindBio on best practices and implementation of the Google health solution. Digital Mind Technology, run by Dr. Lahiru Russel, has used Google’s health solutions extensively in her clinical trials and PhD. The intellectual property and knowledge of these trials have been transferred to Digital Mind where she is now building a platform for mindfulness interventions to promote self-regulation of emotions and thoughts that lead to a reduction in mental health conditions.
“Dr. Russell is a welcome addition to our team” said Frederick Pels, CEO of Blackhawk Growth Corp. “Her experience will be a relied upon asset for MindBio, Leichtmind and Trip Pharma. I look forward to updating shareholders with our progress as we continue to grow our life science initiative.”
