Join us as we host Mark Semler and Troy Huth as they introduce the Zucker Institute for Applied Neuroscience (ZIAN) and the Foundation for Research and Development (FRD). It has often been asked why the pace of innovation in medicine can be so slow and how it could be accelerated when there are obstacles to innovation in both academia and industry. Physicians, who are involved with patient care every day, often have ideas for new technology, but most abandon these ideas because they do not have the time or support to carry them forward. In contrast, industry has the engineering and product design know-how as well as the business expertise needed to bring a technology into the clinic, but that technology is often less than ideal because it is designed with little input from front-line clinicians.

The Zucker Institute for Applied Neuroscience was founded in 2012 and brings the worlds of medicine and engineering together to speed the translation of technological innovation into the clinic. ZIAN taps into the creativity of clinicians and provides them access to the expertise in engineering, intellectual property and business development skills needed to develop their ideas into viable products

The Foundation for Research Development promotes, encourages and aids in the generation of intellectual property by the faculty, staff and students at MUSC and to provide or support the evaluation, management, and commercialization of such intellectual property to ensure the intellectual property will provide a benefit to the public. FRD promotes and supports private and public sponsored scientific and other scholarly research projects and to develop and manage the intellectual property resulting therefrom and works to advance the awareness and knowledge of the faculty, staff and students at MUSC in topics related to intellectual property, technology development, entrepreneurship and technology transfer.

At the completion of the presentation, attendees will be:
1. Introduced the group to ZIAN (Zucker Institute for Applied Neuroscience) 
2. Introduced to FRD (Foundation for Research and Development)
3. Understand the resources available at MUSC
