Quentin Adams wins gap funding award

Quentin Adams, MD, our Chief Resident, was one of 3 recipients of gap funding of $30 000 for his innovation in the "Development and accuracy testing of mechanical positioner for prostate cancer therapy."

He is the only resident physician to be included in the award designed to support innovative, entrepreneurial-minded faculty and staff with projects or ideas that address unmet needs in health care. Gap funding is intended to support research for projects that are not yet commercially viable, but have outstripped traditional funding sources.

This award is bestowed by UI Ventures, part of Innovation and Economic Development at Iowa. Carver College of Medicine Faculty and staff were invited to submit software or medical device proposals.
