Our team

Calla Health Foundation is a Duke University spin off company that seeks to commercialize and successfully bring to market intellectual property developed at Duke University and, more specifically, the Center for Global Women’s Health Technologies (GWHT). We see development of products from concept through to clinical use and, ultimately, market entry.

Located within the Chesterfield Building of downtown Durham, NC, Calla Health employs four employees who collectively lead product manufacturing, automated algorithms and software, and generate evidence through clinical implementation. Our core competencies include optical imaging system design, rapid prototyping, machine learning diagnostic algorithms, software development, mechanical and electrical engineering, clinical study design, and regulatory clearance.
