This interactive session begins with a 5–7-minute presentation by each of three MCW faculty members who have developed breakthrough technologies. Two will talk about their experiences with startups based on their research. The third will talk about a technology that is the potential basis for a startup that would have large market and health care impact opportunities. Technologies presented will include novel uses of software and AI in medical imaging and as well as a pharmaceutical technology that addresses a large unmet medical need. After their presentations, each will join a virtual table along with their business partner. They will answer questions about their technologies and the role of startups in commercialization.
