Congratulations Alex Toews and his New Venture Design team for 1st place at UBC’s Life Sciences Start-Up Competition!

Curios Labs wins first place with their wearable device, CheckPoint, which replaces a pain journal for chronic pain suffers. One click during an episode helps track and analyze pain symptoms for later reporting to their physician, easing the need for remembering and manually recording their pain experiences.
