Strategic partnerships / collaborating with research institutions as an entrepreneur
This month, we’ll be chatting with Dr. Amir Manbachi, who works at the intersection of academic research, collaborations with industry, and entrepreneurship. He is an Assistant Professor of Neurosurgery, Mechanical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, and Electrical and Computer Engineering at the Johns Hopkins University, currently leading a $13.48M award from DARPA to develop implantable ultrasound devices for patients with spinal cord injury. He is also a Technical Advisor for NeuroSonics Medical, Inc. to develop a novel ultrasound device for minimally invasive neurosurgery. Finally, he is the former Founder and CEO of Spinesonics Medical, in which he commercialized an ultrasound device for spine surgery based on his PhD work at the University of Toronto. Dr. Manbachi will share his experiences, tips, and lessons learned from consistently turning cutting edge research into reality.
