I met John Bashkin through our mutual membership in the Bio2Device Group. He asked me to co-author an article in MDDI based on a presentation I gave to the group in April. The article with side bar has been published–Medical Device Makers Can Learn Social Media Skills from Pharma + ShareThis Example. I’d like to introduce my collaborator.
- How did you arrive in your current role?
I began my career as a technologist and gradually became more interested in how technology and business map onto each other to create commercially successful innovation. That’s where I’ve been working for past decade or so, with particular interest in life science and medical device innovations.
- What do you love most about the work you do?
Working across a wide variety of technologies and clinical needs pushes me to constantly learn, and that keeps the work stimulating.
- Where is the most exotic place in the world that you’ve eaten?
In the heart of the Ranomafana National Park in Madagascar, where I was volunteering on a lemur conservation project. Exhausted, soaked to the bone, covered in mud, and flicking off leeches – a can of sardines never tasted so good!
Many colleagues know of my fascination for the medical use of leeches so I have to say that I am a little jealous of John’s experience.
