Welcome to the fourth edition of the Fogarty Institute e-newsletter. As always, we have exciting progress being made by our startups, and have enjoyed hosting an increasing pool of visitors who come to the Institute to learn about innovation, what it takes to create a successful startups and how to better serve the patients.
This month, we had the privilege of hosting Tanishq Abraham, a child prodigy, who at only 12 years of age, has accomplished more than many will achieve in a lifetime. One of his goals is to become a surgeon with the aim to help save as many lives as possible.
We are also very pleased to announce the strong progress made by company in residence Materna, which will greatly reduce the traumatic impact childbirth has on a woman’s body. Materna has been conducting highly successful clinical trials here at El Camino Hospital and in Texas, and is looking to engage with the FDA in 2016.
We hope you enjoy this edition, and as always, we appreciate any feedback on our work and e-newsletter.
