The Tiniest Probe May Reach the Highest Honor | Dr. Patricia Ann Broderick, PhD.

Trademarked, the BRODERICK PROBE®, the tiny nanoprobe was created by a tiny but mighty five-foot girl, Dr. Patricia Ann Broderick, PhD. The name was to honor her father, Patrick Broderick, Patricia felt a strong desire to name the nanoprobe sensor after her father as her father was killed and taken from her in a shocking oxyacetylene torch welding accident on the Christmas Eve when Patricia had just turned the age of seven. The abandonment that Patricia feels every Christmas Eve is formidable and the complexity of the brain always propelled her to elucidate how the brain works. What happened to her father?
