Inventor Recognition: Perspectives from the Frontline

Tuesday, May 19th 12:00-1:00 pm – ML2A. A light lunch will be provided.

Developing any new technology involves identifying a problem faced by many and then creating a solution that elegantly addresses those needs. But this is really only the first step, moving a good idea from your mind, to paper, to a prototype, to a final product takes a lot more. Passion, persistence, and patience are all needed in equal measure to turn that great idea into an effective solution that others will reach for.

This week we will learn from the experience of inventors here at Marshfield Clinic. They will share how they identify the problems most in need of a solution, tips they have for creating a solution, and the skills that have helped them push those technologies along so they can eventually help others.

Please RSVP – 389.3430 or bushman.marsha@marshfieldclinic.org for lunch. Walk ins also welcome!

The goal of innovation in healthcare is to improve how the Clinic cares for patients, and to make those tools widely available. Contact or visit Applied Sciences in Laird Center for Medical Research – ML8 or visit its website: https://www.marshfieldclinic.org/applied-sciences.
