The most rewarding projects are where one is challenged to establish a paradigm shift and can change the standard of care. These special projects require a deeper level of understanding of the disease state and the science behind the technical solutions. A comprehensive process helps to solve the most difficult challenges and by extension the simple ones too. In this webinar, the featured speaker will talk about the productization of translational science — breaking down tasks and developing solutions that will change the standard of care.
When talking about simplifying challenges, it is a good idea to start with a task analysis. This can be high level or aspirational if the project is early-stage and concept configurations have not been established. If the solution space is well defined the task analysis (or functional flow) may have a lot of detail. Each step should be evaluated through the lens of the stakeholders to identify user challenges and opportunities to enhance the experience. In addition, each step should be evaluated considering the technical aspects and looking for failure modes and ways to improve performance.
At Veranex, translational science activities are woven into this process to establish a thorough understanding of the physiology associated with the therapy (what is changing) and conversely the science behind the mechanism of action of the technology (how it’s changing it). A couple of examples of physiologic needs: 1) establish the correlation of bilirubin levels and skin color across infant ethnicities. 2) establish the mechanical forces applied to a cell to create openings in the cell wall. Examples of technology needs could be 1) identify methods to measure changes in bilirubin levels or 2) how to isolate cells and impart prescribed shear forces.
These activities and processes ensure product solutions that will be successful. Join this webinar to learn how to bring about the productization of translational science, with insights into developing impactful solutions.
