Week 13 – Small Victories

In medical device development (and science-related fields in general such as drug development and discovering how a disease like Alzheimer’s forms/progresses), small victories are a way of life. Get enough of them on the same program and maybe this leads to something promising. Sometimes, the small victories are just that and may not advance the cause at all. I equate it to fighting a war in that if enough small battles are won, you try to advance so that at one point the war can be won. There is no better example of this than drug discovery. Only 1 in 5,000 drug candidates that make it through to clinical trials become an approved drug that helps a patient. This is on top of the fact

Week 12 – “Progress is Our Most Important Product”

My late father-in-law Shorty (his nickname from when he was young man and not me insulting him) used to love to ask me what our most important product was, which always ended up with him saying that “progress is our most important product.” While he liked using this saying, it was General Electric that was the first one to use this as their company slogan back in the 50’s and 60’s. As I looked around the company this week (when I was not running into Boston for our preclinical study), no truer words could be spoken. Progress is being made on all fronts of the company, from manufacturing to research and development (R&D) and regulatory (more to come on this area in an upcoming blog). It is

Week 11 – That Sweet Sound!

Hope everyone is enjoying their summer so far. Unfortunately, it tends to fly by too quick. In a medical device-based company, this is especially true. Everything we do seems to require us to monitor time in some form or fashion, from running experiments and performing specific benchtop tests to evaluating our devices in preclinical studies. It always feels like “hurry up and wait.” Sometimes, the wait is well worth it. As I relayed to you in my previous blogs, we are putting our NuSpun Vascular Graft through many different types of tests (e.g. benchtop and preclinical) that are required before implantation into a patient. These studies require various skill sets, from engineers and sc

Week 10 – Why Do We Need Prosthetic Grafts Anyway?

I went back this past weekend to see what I’ve covered in the previous “Spin” of the Week blogs. It is hard to believe it is already Week 10! Week 1 seems like so long ago (memory begins to slip with age). I hope that you’ve enjoyed the wide range of topics, from business and personal perspectives to providing an overview about some of our technology. As I reviewed the different blogs, one thing that jumped out was I have not provided an explanation as to why would we need a device like our NuSpun Vascular Graft. Like most things in life that you do a lot, you tend to forget that not everyone knows the background behind what you are doing. I think most of us will admit to talking to pe
