Josh Makower, MD, quite possibly invented modern day medtech innovation.

In this interview, Makower shares his earliest inventions – kind of mind-blowing – and how his early work at Pfizer helped him create the innovation process used today by biodesign programs across the world, including Stanford Biodesign where Dr. Makower will take over as director this fall.

This interview is essential for any individual or organization that wants to innovate. Dr. Makower will share his thoughts on how innovation in any industry should be approached.
