World Renowned Patient Safety Champion Joins CAREier Advisory Board

POTOMAC, Md. -- CAREier, Inc., the revolutionary medical device communication company, is building an advisory board of patient safety and healthcare industry powerhouses. Its latest addition is world renowned, Peter J. Pronovost, M.D., Ph.D., F.C.C.M., a critical care physician and prolific researcher who has published more than 800 peer review publications; his scientific work has saved thousands of lives.

"We're absolutely thrilled that Dr. Pronovost has joined our advisory board," Ryan Bass, founder and CEO, CAREier says. "As a global thought leader who has influenced U.S. and global health policy, I'm confident he will help us to champion a new chapter in healthcare IT, patient safety and medical device communication."

When Bass founded CAREier, he sought to turn the world of medical device communication on its head. He didn't just want an incremental improvement to the processes used today, he wanted to change the system - and eventually the world's standards for patient level communication expectations. There's no other platform like it.

CAREier provides a framework for seamless communication across the entire medical device spectrum for an automated, immediate, and secure delivery of patient electronic device information, device recalls, standards of care reminders and more.

"We really work from the top down," Bass says. "Everyone from the FDA to the patient is part of our holistic network. And we're sure that our advisory board will help us to build a better medical device communication ecosystem. I'm truly humbled and honored to have Dr. Pronovost on board."

In 2005, Dr. Pronovost was involved in the launch of a leading solution to the medical device communication problem and since then, he says he hasn't seen any real innovation - that is - until now.

"Almost 20 years ago, I was involved in developing systems and processes related to the recalls experienced by health systems. Since then, innovation in this space has been slow and I was excited when CAREier approached me with their pioneering solution. CAREier is not an incremental improvement to today's workflows, but is a transformative approach to more efficiently and effectively manage recalls and improve safety."

About Peter J. Pronovost, M.D., Ph.D., F.C.C.M.:

Dr. Pronovost is the Chief Quality and Clinical Transformation Officer at University Hospitals. His entrepreneurial patient safety endeavors have earned him high-profile accolades - including being named one of the 100 most influential people in the world by "Time" magazine, receiving a coveted MacArthur Foundation "genius grant" in 2008.

In his current role, he fosters ideation and implementation for new protocols to eliminate defects in value to enhance quality of care; develop new frameworks for population health management for its more than 1 million patients; and manage the UH Accountable Care Organization (ACO) Network - one of the nation's largest. His primary focus is to keep people "Healthy at Home." In just 12 months, one of his concepts fueled a reduction in annual costs per patient in the UH ACO by nine percent.

He's also served as the senior vice president for Patient Safety and Quality at Johns Hopkins Medicine as well as the founder and director of the Johns Hopkins Medicine Armstrong Institute for Patient Safety and Quality. While there, he worked to eliminate all harms in one health system following on his success in eliminating one harm in most health systems across the U.S.

Tens of Thousands of Researchers Celebrated During 13th National Postdoc Appreciation Week

ROCKVILLE, Md. -- The National Postdoctoral Association (NPA) today kicked off the 13th annual National Postdoc Appreciation Week (NPAW), taking place today through Friday. NPAW is the nation's largest celebration of postdoctoral scholars who serve at more than 300 institutions, acknowledging the significant contributions "postdocs" make to research, innovation and scientific discovery. This year's NPAW theme, "Finding Your Balance," recognizes the challenges postdocs face in balancing the rigors of their research positions with maintaining their health and wellness.

Postdocs are individuals holding doctoral degrees engaged in a temporary period of mentored research or scholarly training to gain needed skills to excel in their careers. These scholars conduct a large share of critical, cutting-edge research across all disciplines at universities, research institutions and industry members across the United States.

"Postdocs require exemplary discipline, focus, and balance to succeed in their challenging positions," said Tom Kimbis, J.D., executive director and chief executive officer of the NPA. "They are the backbone of science and research leadership in our country and deserve recognition throughout the year. Carving out a week to celebrate their remarkable work ethic and achievements is the least we can do."

The contribution of the roughly 70,000 U.S. postdocs, whose numbers are concentrated in the STEM fields and are instrumental to much of the early-stage research that occurs throughout the country, is often overlooked, as the academic postdoc is neither a student nor a faculty member. Yet, postdocs represent the highest-educated individuals in our society and drive innovation daily.

"Many don't realize that thousands of postdocs work in the social sciences - from economics to psychology - and go onto leadership positions in government, industry, and non-profit organizations," commented Stephanie Eberle, M.Ed., executive director of BioSci Careers at Stanford University. "Like those in the physical sciences, their roles are critical to societal growth and innovation."

Since its founding by the NPA in 2009, NPAW has grown into a truly national event, with universities, medical centers, industry members, and others hosting events this week to acknowledge the contributions of postdocs. Popular events during NPAW include professional and career development workshops, networking activities, and social events celebrating the immense contribution of postdocs to our nation's thought leadership. This year, roughly 40 free national events are open to all postdocs, in addition to local events happening on campuses across the nation.

NPAW 2022 is anchored by a kickoff event with opening remarks by Sharon Milgram, Ph.D., director of the Office of Intramural Training & Education (OITE) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and a panel discussion, featuring Robert Hable, Ph.D., innovation and product commercialization coordinator at BASF; Inge Hansen, Psy.D., clinical psychologist and director of well-being at Stanford University; and Yen Teng Tai, Ph.D., postdoctoral researcher at Penn State University College of Medicine. The discussion will focus on challenges early career researchers face, lessons learned from their own struggles, and a framework for postdocs to build better balance in their professional lives as they navigate their career progression.

A calendar of 2022 NPAW events can be found at https://www.nationalpostdoc.org/page/2022NPAW

This year, NPAW is made possible by NPA Distinguished Partner, Gallagher Insurance, and NPA Gold Partner, Proteintech.

The NPA is a national charitable and educational non-profit association headquartered in Rockville, Maryland, that seeks to improve the postdoctoral experience by supporting a culture of inclusive connection. At the individual, organizational, and national levels, the NPA facilitates enhanced professional growth, raises awareness, and collaborates with stakeholders in the postdoctoral community. Membership in the NPA is open to all organizations and individuals interested in advancing the interests of postdocs in the United States.

Affiliate membership in the NPA for most postdocs is free and available at https://www.nationalpostdoc.org/.

Proteios Technology, Inc. Awarded $1.6 Million NIH SBIR Grant to Commercialize its Multivariate Cell Isolation Technology

SEATTLE, Wash. -- Proteios Technology, Inc. is pleased to announce it's received a $1.6 million SBIR Phase II grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to commercialize its multivariate (parallel) cell isolation technology. Grant funds will be used to extend Proteios' cell isolation kits to include up to 20 of the most common cell types currently used in cell therapy development.

Cell biology is complex. And conducting experiments on an isolated population of cells, rather than a heterogeneous mix, is a common approach to reduce experimental complexity. Cell isolation allows cell biologists to confidently attribute observed effects and responses to a particular cell type.

Specifically, Proteios' multivariate cell isolation technology provides high-performance, antibody- and magnetic bead-free isolation of cell types in fewer than 30 minutes. This is a big reduction in time compared to currently available methods, while meeting or exceeding cell yield, purity and viability.

Proprietary Proteios Chimeras will be designed and developed to bind to each of the 20 target cell types with high specificity and selectivity through a combination of robotic biological screening, Machine Learning (ML) and Molecular Dynamics (MD) simulation.

Proteios will also incorporate Proteios Chimeras into its cGMP cell therapy manufacturing device - a bench prototype funded under contract by the National Cancer Institute (NCI). The device provides end-to-end manufacturing of cell therapies in a closed and fully-automated system with concise control over the multiple cell types that form the basis of cell therapy formulations. Proteios Chimeras will be a major component of consumables for the cGMP cell therapy manufacturing device.

"It's believed that the effectiveness of cellular therapeutics can be improved by the addition/removal of certain secondary cell types," Bob Snyder, Ph.D., co-founder and CEO of Proteios Technology, says. "Proteios' cell isolation technology will provide for the parallel enrichment and/or depletion of any cell type as new cell therapy formulations are investigated, reducing the vein-to-vein time and overall manufacturing cost."

Proteios is also preparing for the immediate commercial release of its research-scale recombinant protein purification kits which will provide a viable alternative to His Tag technology, unusable with about 20 percent of proteins of interest.

Initially, Proteios will launch two kits based on a proprietary affinity tag and a silica-based resin for:

1 - high-expressing proteins; and

2 - low-expressing proteins.

To learn more: https://www.proteios.com/

About Proteios Technology:

Proteios Technology is a leading provider of products and services dedicated to supporting the discovery of advanced therapeutics and their efficient manufacturing. Its innovative solutions support research at all levels from discovery and translational research to cGMP manufacturing and companion diagnostics. Its technologies enable the multivariate (parallel), tag-free isolation of any biological, including proteins/biopharmaceuticals, cell types, antibodies and viruses. Proteios' research-scale kits enable the discovery of new advanced therapeutics. And the inherent scalability of the technology allows the same methodology to be used in the manufacturing of advanced therapeutics and dramatically reduces the time required for process development.

Proteios is driven by the goal to lower the cost of healthcare and to provide advanced therapeutics to a larger patient population. It's located in the heart of Seattle and adjacent to some of the world's leading cell therapy research institutes - including the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, Seattle Children's Research Institute and the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance.

Modern Foot & Ankle Opens New Clinic, Offers Evening Hours In Wesley Chapel

WESLEY CHAPEL, Fla. -- Modern Foot & Ankle is moving on up-to Wesley Chapel. Today the Central Florida podiatric group expands further into Pasco County by launching its eleventh clinic.

Ryan Haaksma, DPM, relocated from Chicago to bring his medical expertise to the group's newest location. He says he is excited to trade in the snow for a warm climate and friendly faces.

"Wesley Chapel is a rapidly growing community with a large family presence," said Dr. Haaksma. "There are a lot of outdoor activities. It's a challenging but rewarding opportunity to use the techniques I've learned to keep everyone walking pain-free."

Dr. Haaksma trained at one of the top orthopedic systems in the Midwest and under some of the most respected foot and ankle surgeons in the country at Rush University Medical Center. There, he learned a wide range of advanced options for conservative treatment and surgical intervention.

Now, by joining Modern Foot & Ankle, Dr. Haaksma has the support to deliver the highest quality care.

"Modern Foot & Ankle provides the infrastructure to allow me to practice with the most up-to-date technology to treat patients efficiently and obtain the best outcomes," he said.

From an early age, Dr. Haaksma knew he wanted to be in medicine. One of his first jobs was as a podiatric assistant.

"At the podiatry office I worked at, I had some wonderful mentors who took me under their wing," he said. "With their guidance, I realized how rewarding and beneficial a career in podiatry could be."

Dr. Haaksma says it's a great feeling of accomplishment to have worked his way from the bottom to the top.

"Besides my beautiful family, it is what I'm most proud of," he added.

The clinic is located in the plaza at 5841 Argerian Dr. in Wesley Chapel. Dr. Haasma offers evening hours because he believes creating an experience based on convenience and ease is a key component of a patient-centric approach, in addition to a welcoming demeanor.

"My greatest strength is listening to my patients and working together to come up with a treatment plan that works best for their goals," he said. "The most rewarding part of being a podiatrist is meeting a patient who's seen multiple providers without ideal results and being able to provide them with the results they've been wanting for years."

Patients who would like to schedule an appointment with Dr. Haaksma can book online at book.mfahealth.com or call 1-844-MODERN9.

There are more than 40,000 Invisalign providers in the United States, but only less than 1% of those perform well enough to be named a VIP: Diamond Plus provider.

"It's an amazing honor to earn this coveted distinction, but we are more so excited for our family of patients and partnering with them on their smile journey. We are proud to be able to provide unparalleled dental care and help them achieve the straight and healthy smile of their dreams, all by offering this comfortable, proven and effective teeth-straightening method," said Dr. Craig Spodak, general dentist at Spodak Dental Group.

VIP: Diamond Plus status is the Top 1% status that an Invisalign Provider can earn, as it requires that an office completes 200 cases every six months. The accreditation comes from Invisalign, and it gives a clear indication of an office's experience and expertise working with the Invisalign system. To date, the Spodak Dental Group team has successfully treated more than 2,300 patients.

Spodak Dental Group is the only general dental office to earn the VIP: Diamond Plus status in Palm Beach, Broward and Martin Counties. The team of dentists conveniently offers current and future new patients both Invisalign® Adult and Teen treatments, and provides virtual appointments for those patients who wish to avoid in-office appointments.

Invisalign® effectively treats a wide variety of cases, including crowding, spacing, crossbite, overbite and underbite, and consists of smooth, comfortable plastic aligners instead of sharp metal, reducing irritation on your teeth and gums.

In addition to being a VIP: Diamond Plus Provider, the Spodak Dental Group uses the iTero® Digital Scanning System to provide great quality of care and comfort for their patients. The System eliminates the need for messy putty in the patient's mouth by creating a 3-D digital impression of his/her teeth. The System offers a faster and more comfortable experience with more accurate results, which delivers a more precise fit for the Invisalign® aligners.

Spodak Dental Group is currently helping patients begin their Invisalign® treatment for $0 down and $243 per month for 24 months, interest free. Average treatment time at the Spodak Dental Group is 10 months for adults, which is significantly less than traditional metal braces, in addition to being less expensive than braces.

The Spodak Dental Group, a 2017 Inc. 5000 honoree, has evolved to become South Florida's premier, comprehensive dental facility, and comprises a world-class association of dental professionals poised to provide full-service dental care second-to-none in both scope and skill. The Spodak Dental Group team includes General and Restorative Dentists, Endodontists, Periodontists, Board Certified Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, Master Ceramic Artists and Anesthesiologists, as well as one of the nation's only in-office dental labs.
