Nexalin Technology, a developer of neurostimulation products, is establishing a military and government advisory board, whose purpose is to help formulate and implement a strategy for the commercialization of the company’s deep-brain stimulation devices.
The advisory board will be led by David Lasseter, the founder of Horizons Global Solutions, a provider of consulting services with a focus on biotechnology, intelligence, law enforcement and national security, Nexalin said Wednesday.
Lasseter’s career includes time as a U.S. Marine Corps officer and service in government, including as deputy assistant attorney general for legislative affairs at the Department of Justice and deputy assistant secretary of defense for policy.
Regarding Nexalin’s deep-brain stimulation devices, Lasseter said he considers the technology promising in terms of bringing help to members of the military and others suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder and other mental illnesses.
“I look forward to working closely with Nexalin to advance the technology within the military and other agencies across the government sector,” Lasseter added.
For his part, Nexalin CEO Mark White said he and his organization are honored to work with Lasseter. White said Lasseter’s connections and skills will help bring Nexalin’s drug-free therapy to military personnel in need, noting: “We believe that our neurostimulation devices have the potential to become a standard of care for treating mental health issues as they allow deeper penetration into the brain and provide enhanced patient response without adverse side effects.”
White also noted the timeliness of the establishment of the advisory board due to increasing federal budget allocation to mental health services.
