Chief Medical Officer


Charles Allan, M.Eng

Chief Executive Officer


George Xereas, PhD

Chief Technology Officer





Dr Harvey has a rich history of collaboration with basic, clinical and engineering scientists. He is a tenured Professor of Surgery at McGill University.  He is the Director of the Injury Repair and Rehabilitation program (one of only eight programs that make up the entire institute) at the MUHC-RI with over 100 investigators in his group. He is, or has been, editor-in-chief of the Canadian Journal of Surgery; editorial board member of the Journal of Orthopaedic Trauma and OTA International; chairman of the Research Committee and of the Annual Basic Science Course of the OTA; chair of the Trauma Section at the ORS; and president of the Canadian Orthopaedic Association amongst other national and international positions.





Charles has a passion for solving problems with MEMS technology. Prior to NXTSENS Microsystems Inc., he completed an M. Eng. at McGill University where he led an engineering team developing high precision MEMS absolute pressure sensors. In his B.Eng., Charles led a team that developed a miniature glaucoma pump. Currently he is leading the commercialization efforts of MY01, leveraging his passions for both business and engineering to ensure optimal user experience and adoption.





Dr. Xereas obtained his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from McGill University in 2017, under a fellowship from Les Vadasz Foundation – Intel. The results of this work lead to a MEMS oscillator that for the first time achieved compliance with the stringent phase-noise GSM specifications. The intellectual property developed in his PhD resulted in 14 publications, and 2 USPTO utility patent applications. He is a co-founder and Chief Technology Officer of MY01 Inc.



Our Start

We started as a Master’s project at McGill University. Founders, Dr. Ed Harvey, Charles Allan and George Xereas, worked on developing a MEMS-based pressure sensor that acts as a reliable ACS diagnostic tool. As we continued development we realized that we could apply our knowledge to broader applications, tackling other healthcare challenges.
