Perspectives from the intersection of engineering, regulatory strategy, and commercialization of medical devices
This month, Kelliann Wachrathit will share her unique perspectives from integrating her background in bioengineering, regulatory research at the FDA, regulatory consulting, assessing intellectual property, and nursing. Kelliann obtained her undergraduate degree in Bioengineering from the University of Maryland, College Park, after which she assessed medical devices at the FDA for over 10 years. She is now a Masters student at the Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing, as well as a Commercialization Academy Fellow at the Johns Hopkins Technology Ventures, where she evaluates the intellectual property, regulatory, and market landscape of novel inventions. She has a strong interest in understanding how medical devices are developed, how patients and healthcare professionals use them, and how medical devices fit into the larger healthcare system, with the goal of combining her past and new experiences to support medical device innovation and impact patients and healthcare providers.
