The healthcare system refers to these as “never events” so they should never happen, right? But, data suggests that they occur more than twice a day. This was a red flag for Jackson Medical co-founders James Rains and…

Commercialization During the COVID-19 Crisis: Lessons Learned in a 60 Minute Webcast.

The vast majority of novel ideas from academia never make it into clinical use. Together we can change that. Innovative medical technologies start with a great idea, novel science and an identified unmet clinical need. The process by which these technologies enter clinical care is as complicated as the science behind it. On October 7th,…

Buyer beware: Common costs in preclinical research: a free webinar from GCMI

All preclinical study estimates are not created equal: they may or may not include line items that can widely influence the total fee. We know preclinical studies are expensive. Medical product innovators need to know much more goes into the making of a high quality, value-based preclinical study that is critical, but is not always…
