On the Wednesday, September 11th, 2013 broadcast at 10AM Pacific/1PM Eastern our special guest is Dr Daniel Kraft, the Director of FutureMed and Founder of IntelliMedicine.
Daniel is a fixture in the health innovation conversation, from TED to CES he provides both context and insight into the future of medicine and health.
More about Daniel:
'Daniel Kraft is Stanford and Harvard trained physician with over 20 years of experience in clinical practice, biomedical research and healthcare innovation. Following undergraduate degrees at Brown University and medical school at Stanford, Dr. Kraft was board certified in the Harvard combined Internal Medicine and Pediatrics residency program at the Massachusetts General Hospital and Boston Children's Hospital. He went on to complete Stanford fellowships in hematology, oncology and bone marrow transplantation, as well as conduct extensive research in stem cell biology and regenerative medicine. Through faculty positions with Stanford University School of Medicine and as clinical faculty for the pediatric bone marrow transplantation service at UCSF, Daniel has multiple scientific publications (including in Nature and Science) and numerous patents in the space of medical devices, immunology and stem cells. Daniel is the faculty chair for the Medicine track at Singularity University and is Executive Director for FutureMed, an annual program, which explores convergent, exponentially developing technologies and their potential in biomedicine and healthcare. He is inventor of the MarrowMiner, a minimally invasive device for the harvest of bone marrow stem cells, which has achieved FDA approval and founded RegenMed systems to commercialize this technology.'
On the Wednesday September 4th, 2013 broadcast at 10AM Pacific 1PM Eastern our special guest is visionary Dave Albert, MD, the Founder and Chief Medical Officer of Alivecor.
According to the Doctors Channel:
'Mobile phones and diagnostic devices are merging to provide quality ?clinical measurements from anywhere. David Albert, MD, Founder & Chief Medical Officer, AliveCor, demonstrates the AliveCor ?ECG, an iPhone accessory that will allow both physicians and patients to ?capture and transmit clinical quality heart ECG data using their smart phones'.
Per their website the Alivcor Heart Monitor is a
'..quality, single-channel ECG recorder that leverages the power, display, and communication capabilities of the iPhone 4, 4S and 5. '
'The Heart Monitor does not use power from the iPhone, but utilizes a 3.0V coin cell battery that will take up to roughly 10,000, 30-second ECGs before needing replacement. The Heart Monitor also uses AliveCor’s proprietary wireless communication protocol to communicate with the app, and requires no pairing between the iPhone and the Heart Monitor.'
We'll discuss Dave's journey into the digital health space, his view of the market and the opportunities he sees near and intermediate term.
On the Wednesday, February 20th at 1:30PM Pacific/4:30PM Eastern broadcast we are super stoked to chat with scientist, cancer researcher and mathematician, and did I say High School student Jack Andraka. Andraka is the 2012 Intel Science Fair grand prize winner. He was honored with the Gordon E. Moore Award for his work in developing a new method to detect pancreatic cancer.
I learned about Jack for the fist time from the FutureMed 2013 livestreaming broadcast on February 5th, 2013, titled 'the future of oncology'.
May I say, I (as were all in attendance at FutureMed as well as the global audience following via the livestream broadcast) was blown away by his passion, intellect and tenacity. For some background information on Jack, see: Meet Jack Andraka: Mathematician, Scientist, Cancer Researcher.
Listening to him I immediately thought he would be a treat for our listeners, so I reached out to Jack and he's agreed to be on the show.
For more on this amazing and inspirational young man, take a peek at the entry at wikipedia: Jack Andraka.
His story of determination in the face of 199 academic rejections, and one tepid, 'we'll see' what you got reception frames focus and passion in a way that many do not experience.
Tune in for what will be an informative and fun session.
