Our story

The spark for establishing Cerenion came when Dr. Jukka Kortelainen MD PhD, one of the co-founders of the company, was completing his residency at the Department of Clinical Neurophysiology at the Oulu University Hospital. While working in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU), Jukka realized just how little was known about the brain function of the patients treated at the ICU. The function of the heart and the lungs was monitored carefully, but little attention was often given to the brain even though it is perhaps the most vital of organs. This despite the fact that inadequate monitoring of brain function may significantly impair the treatment of the paitient and increase the costs of care. This is what Cerenion set out to change.
Today, Cerenion has a portfolio of international patents pending, a growing body of clinical evidence from multisite studies and 10 employees at 2 locations in Finland. Our main office is located at the heart of the internationally recognized Oulu Health ecosystem in Oulu and our satellite office is located in the capital region in the vicinity of the Helsinki international airport.
You can meet us at either location, or at one of the many international conferences and trade fairs we take part in every year. Read more about upcoming events .
