FRANK L DOUGLAS, MD, PhD ’66 - President, CEO and Chief strategist for the Austen BioInnovation Institute in Akron, OH, a new biomaterials institute built on a unique collaboration of five leading medical and educational institutions.
The Austen BioInnovation Institute has developed an approach, called value-driven engineering, that could catalyze a new wave of U.S. innovation in medical technology. Value-driven engineering involves simultaneous consideration of the clinical utility, complexity, and healthcare system savings in the design through manufacture life cycle of any device.
Join us in the as Dr. Douglas presents this approach to assessing the value of an innovation and to educating the next generations
