Mylea Charvat

Savonix
CEO
San Francisco, California
Dr. Mylea Charvat, a clinical psychologist and translational neuroscientist founded Savonix to address a critical challenge in the health care world – how do we assess the cognitive function of patients on a large scale despite limited dollars and insufficient numbers of specialists.

Mylea completed her fellowship in clinical neuroscience at Stanford School of Medicine and has authored peer-reviewed articles published in well-respected journals. Mylea is committed to advancing the integration of cognitive data into mainstream healthcare and chronic disease management. The inspiration for Savonix came when Mylea’s husband was severely injured and she experienced first-hand the difficulty in attaining the vital health data her husband needed to achieve recovery – including cognitive screening.

She realized that if access was difficult for her, it must be impossible for others with no training, expertise or network. When she reached out to the relatives of other patients, she learned that the challenges were widespread and intractable. Mylea made the decision to leave a decade of work and a prestigious career trajectory toward professorship to found Savonix. She committed herself, instead, to addressing the pervasive challenges in access to neurocognitive assessments and the dire need of millions of people for regular, accessible and affordable tests.
