Good Monday morning:
With coronavirus infection rates rising nationally and states like Florida, California and Texas on track to exceed New York’s number of cases, the White House has pivoted to a more aggressive stance on mask wearing, lockdowns and other preventive measures. Over the weekend, top federal officials conceded that the nation’s testing capacity isn’t sufficient and have vowed to increase its efforts significantly in the near term. It’s far from clear, however, that this new approach will come in time to measurably slow the disease’s spread.
Here at MedTech, we continue to focus our efforts on helping the bio/med industry move forward in these challenging times. This Thursday, we talk with Syracuse University’s Linda Dickerson Hartsock about how our academic institutions are integrating students into the innovation ecosphere. Linda is a compelling voice for student entrepreneurship and we hope you’ll join us for the next installment in our series, Propelling New York Forward.
