SFU spinout Lungpacer Medical Inc. welcomed nearly 100 guests on Dec. 11 to its new 6,500-sq.-ft. Burnaby premises, which are 3 1/2 times larger than the SFU Neurokinesiology Laboratory location where the company originated.

Since its establishment in 2009, Lungpacer has grown from seven engineers and six students to 25 employees—including 11 SFU grads and interns—led by an impressive international management team. Along the way, the company has garnered seven industry awards, eight government grants and several key patents.
