This episode explores innovation around tracking and treating different diseases and how this is reshaping the future of healthcare in new ways. Dr. Alex Abramson, Assistant Professor at Georgia Institute of Technology, joins me as my guest to share his origin story of how tinkering with technology and a passion for science from a young age led him into the field of biomedical research later on.
He also talks about the ingestible, implantable, and wearable robotic therapeutic devices he has developed that provide measurable therapeutic outcomes—including how he believes pills will replace insulin and injections and how new patches will track cancer regression in real-time.
