November is here, and so is our next BME Edge Alumni Speaker! We are very excited to have Dr. David Gakenheimer (BES JHU 1965 and PhD Caltech 1969), who is the principal developer of the famed LOGICON Caries Detector that is cleared by the FDA as a class 3 device and has been on the market since 1998 with major updates. He also won the 2009 Distinguished Alumni Award from JHU. Dr Gakenheimer will discuss his career path in material science starting in the defense industry and leading to the dental device industry. Discussion will include the steps involved in keeping an invention current and keeping its regulatory status current. Food and drinks provided.
