“I work with companies whose biomedical technologies can improve the delivery of healthcare for our warfighters. I can assess if your technology fits desired Department of Defense capabilities/requirements and determine what innovations would be required for operational use. I can assist in connecting your company with Cooperative Research and Development Agreements (CRADA) with DoD that can improve your likelihood of award success.”
