When: December 10, 2010
Time: 11:30AM – 1:30PM

Frank Douglas, former founder and executive director of Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s (MIT) Center of Biomedical Innovation, is an award-winning industry veteran with more than 24 years of experience in healthcare, pharmaceutical research, and biotechnology.

Douglas joins the BioInnovation Institute in Akron after serving as senior fellow, Ewing M. Kauffman Foundation; senior partner, Puretech Ventures; and chief scientific advisor, Bayer Healthcare, AG. Prior to that he served as professor of the Practice at MIT Schools of Management, Engineering, and Science and the Harvard-MIT Division of Health Sciences and Technology, an interdisciplinary educational and research program.

“The BioInnovation Institute in Akron represents a best-in-class model for the future of healthcare delivery and innovation,” said Douglas. “The history of the city of Akron, combined with outstanding contributions from each of the founding partners, has created a bedrock for excellence in the field of bioinnovation and I look forward to being part of this exceptional team.”

The BioInnovation Institute in Akron is transforming Akron into a model for biomedical discovery and enterprise. Together, the five operating founders of the Institute – Akron Children’s Hospital, Akron General Health System, Northeastern Ohio Universities Colleges of Medicine and Pharmacy (NEOUCOM), Summa Health System and The University of Akron – have a world-class reputation in research, education and health. Funding to create the BioInnovation Institute in Akron began with a grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, lead funder and founding partner of the Institute. The State of Ohio joined the founding members as a key partner in the development of the Institute from concept to reality. Through the collaboration of these complementary institutions, the goal of this initiative is to expand Akron’s rich legacy in materials science to pioneer the next generation of life-enhancing and life-saving innovation for the 21st Century.
