Dr. Nicckay discusses with Dr. Lynn the research and technology that he is using to help save the lives of people.
Chairman and CEO
Lyn is the Co-Founder, Chairman, and CEO of EPR-Technologies, a biomedical spinoff of the Safar Center for Resuscitation Research, University of Pittsburgh, and is committed to the preservation of human life through rapid profound hypothermia (temporary suspended animation), by pursuing techniques and patented products for Emergency Preservation and Resuscitation (EPR) to save a life when standard cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) fails. Lyn has been committed to the concept of EPR’s emergency lifesaving capability and potential applications in the field of resuscitation. Lyn completed undergraduate education at the Johns Hopkins University, School of Arts and Sciences, majoring in biophysics, in 1968. He received his M.D. degree at the University of Maryland, School of Medicine, in 1972, and completed pathology and research post-graduate training at Columbia University, New York, NY, with additional molecular biology research experience at the Roche Institute of Molecular Biology, in 1978. In the past decade, Lyn has been actively involved in research and development programs related to (1) patient/casualty monitoring strategies, (2) emergency hypothermia and rapid cooling techniques for point-of-injury care to induce ultra-profound cooling and temporary suspended animation (EPR), and (3) semi-automated to automated, rapid vessel access techniques for therapeutic hypothermia, and a range of automated needle/catheter guidance and placement technologies.
