    Design Thinking for Clinical Trials

    in Science

    Design Thinking is a human centered approach to innovation that helps uncover the sweet spot of opportunity where the needs of people, the possibilities of technology and the requirements for business success all converge. The application of the Design Thinking methodology (originating out of Stanford’s d.School) as a new approach to looking at solutions can lead to disruptive innovation in clinical trials for drug development. It allows for designing new ways of working, including the needs, challenges and insights about the complex world we work in.  


    In this discussion, we introduce the basic principals of Design Thinking and an understanding of how the methodology teaches empathy for the end user (the patients). We explore its ability to reframe questions and unleash innovative thinking as well as the "downside" of creative tension. Most importantly, we address how Design Thinking can drive more successful trials.  


    Hosted by Valerie Bowling, Executive Director of the Conference Forum, guests include:


    Kate Helber
    Co-Founder, The Helber Group


    Jen Reichuber
    Co-Founder, The Helber Group


    Komathi Stem
    Strategic Innovation Leader, Genentech/Roche


    Kate, Jen and Komathi will also be leading a hands-on program, May 11-12 in Boston. For more information, click here.

    Intersectionality & Diversity in the Tech Industry: Challenge of Silicon Valley

    in Business

    This interview is a three-way discussion between the host, Franne McNeal, the author, Dr. Fay Cobb Payton and Dr. Wayne M. Wormley.


    Dr. Fay Cobb Payton published a book in 2014 entitled: Leveraging Intersectionality: Seeing and Not Seeing, in which she discussed digital and social inclusion in technology oriented fields. Her work is a reflection of the earlier diversity efforts (from the 80’s and 90’s to the new millennium), to create productive and healthy work environments that naturally attract the best and brightest talent, globally. Here we are in 2015 and we see these efforts have not succeeded, especially in technology oriented/STEM fields.

    Guest: Dr. Fay Cobb Payton, Founding Director, MyHealthImpactNetwork, a social network experience that focuses on health disparities and social media technology interventions. @MyHealthImpact provides “voice” for the millennial generation about health, culture and technology innovation topics. www.MyHealthImpactNetwork.org, https://www.linkedin.com/in/drfay, www.twitter.com/MyHealthImpact



    Guest: Dr. Wayne M. Wormley, President, The Wormley Company, an extensive network of consultants and trainers, that provides clients with cost-effective solutions to interpersonal and organizational performance and productivity issues, by creating a work environment in which everyone can do their best work and achieve their full potential. www.linkedin.com/pub/wayne-wormley/5/394/575

    4-15-15- Dr. Hildy: NANO WORLD - Neurospheroids and NanoSensor Tattoo Monitoring

    in Health

    Wednesday, April 15, 2015, 1:00-3:00PM Pacific
    (2:00-4:00pm Mountain; 3:00-5:00pm Central; 4:00-6:00pm Eastern)



    The NANO WORLD of Neurospheroids and Nano Sensor Tattoo Monitoring


     Over the last twenty years, the art of the tattoo has become one of the most common forms of art around. As more and more people of all ages are taking to body art as a form of self-expression, tattoos have become a social norm, and no longer hold the stigma they once did. But what happens when a tattoo becomes more than just art?


    This week on One Cell One Light Radio, Dr. Hildy welcomes returning guest, Melinda Kidder, owner of Columbia Investigations, to discuss the future of tattoos and how they will figure in to nano sensor monitoring.In previous shows, Dr. Hildy has touched on the idea of spray-on bio-sensors that will be able to monitor a number of conditions within your body.


    The idea of a permanent bio-sensor, especially with the national trend of focusing on your personal health, would be appealing to many. Recently Motorola introduced the concept of a tattoo that could not only be used for monitoring, but also for authentication purposes - no longer will you need to remember a password to get into your devices or a website....MORE at website >> https://onecellonelightradio.wordpress.com/2015/04/15/dr-hildy-melinda-kidder-neurospheroids-tattoo-monitoring/

    A Gig Is Nice, But Partnerships Are Key Muni Network Success

    in Internet

    Munis are in the infrastructure business, a.k.a. municipal broadband networks, and doing rather well at it. Indianola Municipal Utilities (IMU) in Iowa is a great example of a city-built asset that is busy creating innovative solutions to meet Indianola’s needs. IMU's network facilitates STEM projects in high schools and colleges, brings students and tech entrepreneurs into startup ventures, and hosts an advertising network that drives new sales for businesses.


    Todd Keilkopf, General Manager of IMU, joins us to describe some of the many benefits of the network, as well as future plans for the network. Similar to Cedar Falls, the other gigabit network in the state, there is a lot of emphasis on economic development. Clearly things are jumping in this part of Iowa. The key to success for IMU has been the creative and extensive use of partnerships, as Keilkopf as keen to point out.
