At Body Vision Medical, we have worked diligently to build a team of experts. We are honored to bring in and partner with talent that directly supports our mission of providing a cost-effective and clinically superior real-time AI Bronchoscopy platform for early-stage cancer diagnostics and treatment.
Body Vision was founded in 2014 in Tel Aviv. Since then, we have grown from a company of one, to a company of 30 full time employees and approximately a dozen part time employees. Throughout this growth, it remains vital for us to ensure our team is at the top of their game, given the resources to excel and is passionate about the future of navigation bronchoscopy and the medical technology industry. We believe in a future of AI navigation bronchoscopy as the foundation of timely diagnostics and treatment of lung cancer and we won’t stop until we impact the 10% lung cancer survival rate facing society today.
The multinational Body Vision Medical leadership team consists of ten individuals divided between Israel and the Western United States, and is proud to be a 60% female-led organization. In a predominantly male industry, a female-led leadership team is rare, and something that we believe is just another reason that Body Vision is different. Our team brings a wealth of knowledge in both the intra-body navigation and lung cancer spaces. We strive to recruit valuable members from all over the globe and believe that our talent is truly unmatched.
