I want to start this week’s blog by saying thank you to all of our veterans for their service.  We are so appreciative of the freedoms we have due to your sacrifice and service.  It’s appropriate that this week started in our nation’s capital as last work week was barely coming to a close.  We had two events scheduled for last Saturday. A little crazy considering so many factors could have affected two meetings that we would have no control over, but such is life...

This week brought a lot of changes, from new people joining the group to making all kind of modifications around the place to adjust to the new norm.  We first welcomed Dr. Jayashree Chakravarty to the research team.  Jayashree brings a strong background in biomaterial development and characterization using background in bioengineering and biotechnology.  This will fit well with what we are trying to accomplish in the various areas we are currently investigating....

I am extremely excited about progress we made this week.  While the blog title may make you think I did some travelling (well, I did do some local travel), most of the progress was centered around getting our new clean space set up to begin pilot manufacturing.  This is a big step in the potential growth of the company.  This one has been a while in the making, requiring us to think not just about designing/making cool new prototype devices but also the process t...

I hope everyone had a great week. I know I sound like a broken record (for those of us old enough to know what a record is), but I am always amazed at how fast the weeks are going by. We were just talking the other day about how fast fall has gone by, with the changing color of the leaves starting to already fade and now falling off of the trees. I’m not sure about you, but for me, there are times where I really need to catch myself because the head starts spinni...

Hope everyone had a great week.  Cannot believe that it is time to write this blog already!  This week just flew by.  Really, the month of October has been a blur.  It has been a very productive month on several fronts.  This week was no exception.  While we are making progress, it comes at the expense of me not being in the lab.  This is hard to deal with because being in the lab is one of the things I enjoy the most, excluding my family and friends.  Being a sc...

For an avid Patriot’s fan like me, having a Thursday night game is a blessing and curse.  The blessing is that it frees up Sunday to do other things and the curse is trying to focus on providing an update for the week while watching the game.  So, if I get off track, I hope you will understand and cut me a little break.  Watching the Pats is one of my guilty pleasures.  In reality, watching football in general is something I really enjoy.  It is fun watching how...

As I mentioned in our last blog, I want to provide you an update on what we are working on with the great folks at Takeda.  Probably not the best topic for the morning as you are settling in for breakfast.  Unlike the NuSpun Vascular Graft that focuses on patients with kidney disease, the devices we are working on for Takeda focus on gastrointestinal disease.  You may be asking, “What is gastrointestinal disease?” and “Why is Takeda, a pharmaceutical giant, looki...

As you know, one of my favorite shows is Seinfeld so again the title pays homage to a quote from George Costanza.  Cannot believe that two weeks have passed by so fast!  Did you miss us?  I know I missed providing you our weekly update.  It has become part of my normal routine.  I hope all has been well during this time apart.  It is not that things have not been progressing over this time period.  On the contrary, the company continued to gain momentum heading i...

Hope everyone had a great Labor Day weekend!  This weekend allowed me to get caught up on a few work-related things.  I know it goes against the Labor Day principle, but such is the life of a small business owner.  We began our shortened work week adjusting to changes to our crew.  While one person may not be a lot for a big company (a blip on the screen), for a small company, it is a large change.  I think one of the strengths of being a small company is being a...
