PAIR distinguished lecture series 9 : healthcare innovation after the pandemic: engineering-based medical education and efforts for commercialization

Overcoming the COVID-19 pandemic, public interests for healthcare innovations significantly increase. In order to prepare the next pandemic, POSTECH is initiating a new engineering-based medical school. This new program aims to solve practical medical problems via innovative technology and put significant efforts for commercialisation. As a Program Chair for the new Medical Science and Engineering Program, I will share my experience and future plans. Further, we spin-off a start-up company, “Opticho”, from the research outcomes in my lab. I will share my experience how translate the lab toys to commercial products: not only excitement but also difficulty.
