Phase 0 Process: Medical Technology Assessment
Guest Speaker: Patrick Strane
When: Thursday, October 5th from 12pm-1pm
Where: CA 2109 Conference Room
The Global Center for Medical Innovations (GCMI) Phase 0 process centers around de-risking medical technologies to better prepare innovators for the rigor of device development and commercialization. This is achieved through a data-driven feasibility assessment of a medical concept. The main areas of focus include: technology assessment, clinical need evaluation, regulatory and reimbursement considerations, intellectual properties analysis, and market evaluation.
WHO IS OUR SPEAKER?
Patrick Strane brings a unique combination of mechanical and biomedical engineering, and device development experience for the Global Center for Medical Innovation (GCMI) team. While at GCMI, Strane has worked with dozens of innovators from a wide variety of medically-focused industries to accelerate the development of medical technology. During his time at Georgia Tech, Strane was awarded the President’s Undergraduate Research Award (PURA) for his extensive work as a research assistant in the Matrix Biology and Engineering Lab headed by Dr. Thomas Barker, Associate Professor in the Coulter Department. In addition, Strane was one of 19 students to be chose as part of the 2012 class of Petit Undergraduate Research Scholars, which provides an avenue for determined undergraduates to pursue a high level of academic research with one-on-one mentoring from talented graduate students. In addition to research, Strane was heavily involved with the machine shop guild (BME Guild), which involved training new students to use the machines in the shop, setting up new machines and learning new machine tools to instruct others on their use. He earned a B.S. in Biomedical Engineering with Honors from Georgia Institute of Technology.
