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...

The weeks continue to fly by!  Where did June go?  I think I notice it more writing this blog because I can’t believe it’s that time again already and another week is in the books.  While it is a lot work writing this (like I need another thing to do), I really enjoy being able to let you know what we are thinking, doing and planning.  We are making strides on so many fronts, but it is never as fast as you want it to be, mostly on the business side.  On the scien...

Before I get started, we are kicking around the idea of doing a social media live chat in the near future to answer any questions that people may have regarding the technology, what we working on, what our future plans are, what is our favorite device, etc.  Any questions you might have that we can answer without giving away trade secrets or infringing on our customer’s proprietary research will be open.  We would like to hear your thoughts.  We have a very simpl...

a lot of moving parts going on here, from developing test procedures to confirm the graft is made the same way each time and performs the way it should and testing our new manufacturing electrospinning unit to setting up a quality management system (a process used to track how each device is made) and assessing the device in our current preclinical study.  Successful execution of all of these moving parts is essential if we hope to bring the device forward for us...

I hope everyone had a safe and relaxing holiday weekend.  While we are fortunate to be afforded this time off, we are forever cognizant and grateful for the people who have given the ultimate sacrifice for our country so we can remain a free society.  As the saying goes, freedom is not free and we should never forget that.  It is always nice to get some time away, even if it is for a short period of time, to recharge your battery.  It is hard to be fully effectiv...

The holiday weekend is almost upon us.  Looking forward to getting some “down time” over the next few days.  Unfortunately, as an entrepreneur, there is no real down time.  You are always thinking about the company in terms of how we are doing in terms of program progress, what do we need to do going forward, designing program timelines, how we bring in more revenue (that one can keep you up at night), chasing promising leads (I spend a lot more time on this than...

Time sure does fly by when you’re having fun.  And this week is no exception.  We spent a good portion of the week getting ourselves ready to begin work on making a drug-eluting access graft that we proposed for KidneyX.  This entailed having discussions with key collaborators (Drs. Yael Vin, Nikhil Agrawal and Mauricio Contreras) on the program to develop and refine our project plan, get our lab in order (we scientist tend to be pack rats so we needed to do some...

Thinking of the what to call this week's blog, I was brought back to the times when one would watch an old mystery show on TV (and no I am not THAT old, but still remember this) when each episode would end saying, "And now, here is the aftermath of their story."  Sort of has a dark connotation to it but in our case, it could not be further from that thought.  You may ask how does BioSurfaces follow up a productive and eventful week that saw the company receive th...
