Encouraging interest in STEM is one of our top goals at the Fogarty Institute. And that starts with offering opportunities, which is why Fogarty has partnered with the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Peninsula (BGCP) to show them the fields of medtech and entrepreneurship firsthand. For example, next summer, we will be offering the chance for BGCP college students to join the Lefteroff internship program.
If there’s one thing that incubators know how to do, it’s innovate. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that while the global pandemic provided challenges for everyone in every industry, incubators were able to find creative ways to survive and thrive.
A recent panel presentation brought together a number of speakers associated with all aspects of the incubator ecosystem,
Reimagining work will help lead us into a new chapter and beyond.
As some states begin to loosen their guidelines, many employees now will have the ability to move from shelter-in-place back to their offices. This remobilization has been referred to by many as “re-entry.”
But we will not be entering the same workspace in the same way;
Most successful professionals will agree that if there is a “secret to success,” it’s having a mentor. And that holds true for the medtech profession as well, judging by the results of our Diversity by Doing (DxD) HealthTech survey. As noted in our recent report, both men and women who had a mentor reported significantly higher job satisfaction than those who didn’t.
Innovation can’t be stopped by a quarantine. The 2020 annual UCSF-Stanford Pediatric Device Consortium Pitch Competition, originally scheduled to take place at the Stanford University School of Medicine, went off seamlessly in a virtual, but still highly interactive format last month.
The Pediatric Device Consortium (PDC) felt it was critical to hold the competition as planned in order to support the much-needed development of health technologies for children,
When healthcare innovation drives you, the possibilities are endless. Like many successful healthtech entrepreneurs, Gordon Saul has worn many hats throughout his career, experiencing the industry from many different angles. Today, he is an integral part of an incredibly talented team as executive director at Stanford Byers Center for Biodesign, an organization that we are honored to have been partnering and collaborating with for many years.
The growing size and influence of the much-anticipated 38th Annual J.P. Morgan Healthcare Conference continues to drive high attendance and concurrent events. This year, the Fogarty Institute played a larger role by hosting its first Innovator’s reception in partnership with Stanford Biodesign, The MedTech Strategist, RCT and the MedTech Innovator.
The reception was a success,
As a healthcare organization that is deeply invested in the well-being of its patients, El Camino Health has always strived to be at the forefront of innovation. Therefore, it is not surprising that it is also one of the few community hospitals that boasts a dedicated clinical research program. The effort started informally through the work of its physicians and has since evolved into a fully integrated part of the hospital operations as the Taft Center for Clinical Research.
With a goal of helping bring together investors and collaborators in the global medtech industry and shine a light on continuing education, the Fogarty Institute once again participated in the prestigious MedTech Strategist Innovation Summit San Francisco 2019 on November 18 and 19; this year assuming a larger role as a co-sponsor and co-organizer. As in the past,
One of Dr. Fogarty’s strengths when forming new companies was a focus on hiring experts in the field who had the ability to both embrace and expand on his vision. Such was the case when he asked Gary Kalbach to help him start the Fogarty Institute for Innovation in 2007. He became founding president and chair of the board,
