Our next Pediatric Tech Talk webinar will be held August 28th with guest speaker, Wilbur Lam, MD, PhD. Dr. Lam is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Pediatrics at Emory University and in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Institute of Technology. Dr. Lam's research interests involve developing and applying novel technologies using micro/nanotechnology, microfluidics, and cell mechanics to research, diagnose, and treat hematologic and oncologic processes. In this upcoming Pediatric Tech Talk webinar, Wilbur Lam, MD, PhD will share with attendees his experiences in the field of pediatric device development as a co-founder of two such startup companies, Cellscope and Sanguina. Those who attend will learn more about the opportunities and challenges of developing and translating biomedical technologies for commercialization in an academic setting, with a focus on pediatric and diagnostic spaces. This webinar will be highly relevant to both researchers and students of pediatric medicine who are interested in clinically translating their inventions or in forming university-borne startups.
