Dr Michelle Svatos (University of Wisconsin)


After twenty years of working in Radiation Therapy productization, this talk looks at numerous research projects that were attempted translations to commercial and clinical use, with examples of failures, successes and many projects in between. Some common characteristics of successful projects can be identified, and a process for cultivating products is shown. Examples from a career working for 2 large companies (Varian, Siemens), 2 small start-ups, and a National Lab will be used to illustrate the meta-research analysis concepts, which features early work on some now-known products.
