Governor DeSantis expressed his pride in his wife's initiative, saying "I am so proud of my wife, Casey, who has spearheaded new cancer initiatives in our state. I first met with Insightec in Israel in 2019, when we were able to partner with them on Alzheimer's treatment. It is great to see great companies doing great work all over the world, and we absolutely want to have them in Florida."
Insightec utilizes ultrasound waves to disrupt the blood-brain barrier, which is being researched to allow drugs used to treat brain tumors to pass through and reach their target at a more effective volume. The technology also allows biopsies to be taken more easily and non-invasively compared to traditional methods.

This MOU is in addition to the partnership Insightec has built with a consortium of Florida universities to further research opportunities on neurological diseases.
The partnership between Insightec and the consortium of Florida universities was first announced following Governor DeSantis' trip to Israel in 2019. Since then, Insightec has placed their technology in five Florida hospitals in collaboration with four Florida universities: Florida International University and Baptist Health South Florida; University of Florida and Broward Health; Florida Atlantic University and Delray Medical Center; University of South Florida and Tampa General Hospital; University of Florida and UF Health Shands Hospital.
The expansion of the Brain State Program by Insightec will provide access for next generation cancer treatments through their breakthrough research trials as well as further research opportunities on neurological diseases for those living in or visiting the Sunshine State.
