Creatv MicroTech, Inc. (Creatv) has received a $625,000 award from the Department of Defense Congressionally Directed Medical Research Programs (CDMRP) to investigate their discovery of giant circulating cells found in peripheral blood for non-invasive detection of lung cancer by differentiating malignant from benign pulmonary nodules detected by low dose CT (LDCT). In the three-year study, Creatv will examine blood samples from 1,250 subjects at high risk for lung cancer based on their smoking history and occupational exposure to carcinogens. The research will be carried out in collaboration with Fox Chase Cancer Center (FCCC) and the Philadelphia VA Hospital.

Please mark your calendar to join us at the Fall 2018 Inova Discovery Series: The Impact of Changing Consumer Expectations on Healthcare Delivery.

Consumer expectations related to healthcare delivery continue to rapidly evolve, forcing health systems and health technology innovators to continually rethink how consumers view the traditional patient-provider-payor relationship. 


It's no secret that choosing the right college can have a big impact on where you end up later in life.

If you're hoping to launch a startup, chances are you'll need some funding down the road -- and, according to the data, the university you attend can be one factor that impacts the amount of funding you'll receive after graduating.


Technologies such as cloud, bigdata, nosql databases, mobile apps, wearable sensors, and healthcare data interoperability are buzz words to many, but they are technologies that are propelling the healthcare-IT field forward into new frontiers.  The possibilities these technologies bring can aide in patient engagement, data aggregation, integration and analytics for precision medicine. This is the cutting-edge space that Jeeva Informatics, a local company, operates in.  It’s also a very attractive field for students who are eager to get work experience in the emerging technologies of the future.


Cybersecurity influencers believe that a new wave of system-embedded devices present a formidable challenge to their field. The Internet of Things (IoT) will introduce a vast amount of small computers, with inadequate security designs, that use high-speed internet, and that combination has all the ingredients for a cyberspace disaster.

Bob Stratton, a security entrepreneur and consultant, states that not every device has to have the high-level security of desktop computers, but manufactures of small computers should include a built-in level of resistance and system integrity.


ExeGi Pharma is pleased to announce two new clinical partnerships with the College of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Georgia and the University of Tennessee to study the Visbiome Vet probiotic in domestic dogs. Both studies will evaluate the probiotic's effectiveness in managing canine gastrointestinal disorders. Visbiome Vet is an 8-strain probiotic compound with an extremely high concentration of beneficial bacteria (112.5 billion bacteria per dose). The formulation in Visbiome Vet is one of the most extensively studied probiotic products for pets, as it has been the subject of four controlled clinical trials.


The U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced today that it has awarded five grants totaling up to $6 million per year over the next five years to Pediatric Device Consortia (PDC) across the country that will provide advice and support services to innovators of children's medical devices. The program aims to enhance the development, production and distribution of pediatric medical devices and has awarded $37 million to various consortia since 2009.
