Two Penn graduates are designing new technology to help doctors better understand mental health

Chris Molaro, a 2017 MBA graduate, co-founded NeuroFlow last year with Adam Pardes, a bioengineering Ph.D. candidate now on leave from Penn, because Molaro saw a need for improvement in mental health treatment after serving in the Army.
