Translational Research

Wallace Coulter applied his highly inquisitive mind and engineering talent to solve unmet clinical needs. Wallace was a biomedical engineer before it became a formal discipline. Following Wallace’s philosophy of “science serving humanity”, Sue Van established the Foundation’s pioneering translational research programs. The programs utilize best practices of industry to accelerate academic innovations to the market to improve patient care. Fondly remembering her time working with Wallace, she said, “I wanted to make up for all of the research and development projects I cut when I was CFO of Coulter Corporation.”
