Beware the Unfamiliar Approach: Preclinical Implications for Novel Cell & Gene Therapies

Roughly one decade ago, scientists made significant improvements in viral vectors’ ability to deliver genetic therapeutics. Those therapies use genetic material like DNA to manipulate a patients’ own cells. Cellular (cell) therapies transfer cells into the patient whether they are the patients’ own cells or cells derived from another location or donor cells.    Because…

Who brings what to the table? Artivion’s Deepal Stevenson, M.S. shares her insights on the client / CRO relationship for effective, efficient preclinical studies and reports.

Life science companies of all shapes and sizes rely on preclinical contract research organizations (CROs) to generate the data and reports required to bring their innovations to market.   To do this effectively, and in a capital efficient manner, each entity needs to understand what they need from the other, when they need it, why…

Q&A with an Industry Leader – What’s One Area Especially Ripe for Acceleration in Preclinical Work? Hint: It’s Not the OR.

As we shared recently, our colleagues at Within3 are using technology to accelerate pharma and medtech innovation in some very interesting ways. Their platform improves life science teams’ engagement in asynchronous applications like advisory boards, helps teams find the right KOLs anywhere on the globe and helps teams make the most out of medical congresses…

Preclinical Implications for 3D Printed and Bioresorbable Medical Technologies

The phrase “personalized medicine” has been thrown about by so many for so long in healthcare as to defy definition: or require post graduate work in any one of dozens of specific clinical or technological fields.   For the sake of brevity, 3D printing and bioresorbable material technologies are actively realizing personalized medicine in the…

Quite a Ride! Meet the GCMI Team: Saylan Lukas, Director of Research and Development Engineering

So many engineers probably wanted to be an astronaut as kids at some point or another. Saylan Lukas wanted to design roller coasters.   Fortunately for GCMI, our clients and patients benefiting from novel medical technologies, Saylan’s elective in Biomedical Engineering taught by Dr. Sam Hulbert at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology shifted his career course…

New Technologies for Neurosurgery, Urology and Endoscopy Earn Inaugural I3 GCMI Research Awards

“In partnership with Georgia CTSA (Clinical and Translational Science Alliance), the I3 (Imagine, Innovate, and Impact) GCMI Research Awards are intended to spark synergistic interactions among investigators from the Emory School of Medicine (SOM) with Georgia Tech affiliate the Global Center for Medical Innovation (GCMI). Proposals are envisioned to improve patient care by more effectively…

When Stars Align – Stridelink quickens its march to commercialization aligned with new remote monitoring capabilities and CMS CPT codes

Occasionally, even in the medtech innovation industry, stars align for a new technology to quickly, powerfully achieve commercialization and the associated clinical outcomes intended.   Such may well be the case for the team and technology at StrideLink.   As we reported last year, “StrideLink is a new technology venture, a first of its kind…

Early, consistent focus on the unmet need keeps Augment Health on a solid commercialization pathway

Stephen Kalinsky and Jared Meyers met on their first day as students in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Tech. Five years later, the graduates have completed a 3-month tenure at ZeroTo510 in Memphis and are currently midstream in their endeavor to advance health and dignity for people dealing with spinal injuries or neurological…
