Translation from Clinical Research to Commercialization

April 10 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

SHRS Innovation Seminar - April 2023

Clinical research is an important field that can lead to new treatments and therapies for patients. However, taking these ideas from the lab to the market can be a challenging process.  In order to translate clinical research to commercialization, it is important to collaborate with experts from various fields, such as business, marketing, and technology.

Drs. Skidmore, Wang, and Zhou will present an overview of collaborative activities that have moved an idea born in clinical research to a new clinical tool with widespread commercialization potential.

About their tool: Drs. Wang and Zhou leveraged natural language processing, computer vision processing, and artificial intelligence techniques to develop an automated fidelity assessment tool that can be commercialized for use in clinical rehabilitation settings.  The team will describe their process of collaboration and plans for commercialization.
