BIO: Carly Kiselycznyk, Founder & CEO, BrainChild Technologies

Carly Kiselycznyk, PhD was trained in neuroscience at the NIH, Karolinska Institute, and Yale University. Leveraging her expertise in behavioral neuroscience, she recognized the opportunity to apply academic techniques to help everyday caregivers understand their infant’s experience and cognitive development. She and her co-founders formed BrainChild Technologies to create an off-the-shelf version of an existing pacifier tool from academic baby labs, with the initial goal of helping caregivers identify hearing issues in infants. BrainChild Technologies has since gained recognition through multiple innovation networks for pediatric medical devices and early childhood, including CTIP, Cambia Grove, NeuroLaunch, Promise Studio’s Early Futures, and Futurebound, as well as winning SBIR awards from the NSF and NIH. Dr. Kiselycznyk also served as a grants officer and technology transition advisor for medical products at the DoD and has since leveraged her experience as both a government funder and awardee to help others develop a grant strategy
