About the Seminar

The Stanford Child Health Research Institute presents its next seminar on Pediatric Healthcare Innovation and Technology Transfer.

The pace of pediatric healthcare innovation typically lags behind adult healthcare innovation because of differences in market size and financial return. Given the challenges, Stanford Children’s Health makes a point of encouraging and supporting development of new pediatric devices, therapeutics, diagnostics, and platforms. Charlette Stallworth will discuss ways to disclose, assess, fund and commercialize inventions at SCH. Dr. James Wall will highlight inventions and inventors who enter the tech transfer process with anything from a diagram on a napkin to functioning prototypes. Each journey is different and compelling. Attendees will depart with greater understanding of SCH tech transfer and keen desire to be involved in groundbreaking – or even incremental - innovation, which transforms pediatric healthcare.

Charlette Stallworth, MBA - Ms. Stallworth is the Vice President of Strategic Partnerships at the Lucille Packard Children's Hospital Stanford, where she spearheads the development of partnerships and is a key leader in technology transfer and innovation. She has previously been responsible for securing business relationships and agreements for clinical trials, licensing, and commercialization of intellectual property with pharmaceutical and medical device companies.

James Wall, MD - Dr. James Wall is a pediatric surgeon at the Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford who focuses on minimally invasive approaches to children’s surgery. Dr. Wall currently leads the perioperative Value Analysis Committee and surgical endoscopy program at the Lucille Packard Children's Hospital Stanford and is the Assistant Director of the Stanford Byers Center for Biodesign Innovation Fellowship Program.
