Dr. Hobart Harris, Professor and Chief of General Surgery at UC San Francisco, is a pioneering surgeon who treats patients with complicated and often life-threatening conditions in the Complex Abdominal Surgery Program. In his efforts to develop a ground-breaking technology that will transform the long-term outcome of abdominal surgeries, he focused initially on the science, and assumed that the positive results would naturally translate to the commercialization of his innovation. He quickly discovered that the product development process hinges on many key elements that go beyond scientific proof, including intellectual property, regulatory strategy and product reimbursement.
