Pierre-François D’Haese, PhD

Inspired by the death of his grandfather, businessman and un-diagnosed Parkinsonian, who kept telling him that his tremor was just fatigue from his long days of work, Dr. D'Haese has been obsessed to find a way to use technology to provide patients with the proper treatment.

After earning two master’s degrees in electrical engineering and business administration, Dr. D’Haese conceived and became the key architect of the CranialCloud health platform and co-founded Neurotargeting. To date, his vision led to the largest and most efficient system to index data from patients suffering from neurological disorders such as Parkinson’s, Epilepsy or pain. This system has been distributed globally and connects expert centers across the world to use experience gathered from past patients to guide the therapy of future ones. Dr. Dhaese has been a close partner of Dr. Rezai for more than fifteen years and personally is involved in supporting the RNI in its mission.

Besides his role as the CEO of Neurotargeting, Pierre D’Haese holds a faculty position at Vanderbilt University as research assistant professor in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, as well as in Neurological Surgery.

No matter what position he is in, Pierre-Francois D’Haese always thrives on being a visionary leader in the neurology space so that progress never ceases to happen, making the neurological disorders more and more bearable for the patients and their families.
