Innovation forums are at the heart of what we do. These forums are held on a regular basis between ENTICe and its academic partner, the Georgia Institute of Technology Center for Neurotechnology, to encourage and facilitate innovation in neuromodulation and neurotechnology.
Collaboration Across Disciplines and Organizations
Innovation forums are disease-oriented, collaborative sessions involving clinicians, scientists, engineers, and others from Emory and Georgia Tech. These forums include presentations to discuss barriers, needs, existing treatments, and opportunities related to a specific disease or disorder. The goal of the session is to identify how the different disciplines can work together to improve existing treatments or create new ones – advancing neuromodulation therapies.
Ideas are systematically fine-tuned and vetted during the facilitated innovation process
and key early experiments are planned for hypothesis validation. The processes towards commercialization are incorporated from the outset of these projects and commercially relevant milestones are developed. This process helps facilitate the intended bidirectional translation of taking ideas from bench to bedside quickly.
