Megan Moynahan, MS, is the Executive Director of the Institute for Functional Restoration (IFR), a non-profit organization based at Case Western Reserve University that has the mission to restore function to people with spinal cord injury by building a sustainable commercial enterprise for neuromodulation systems. The IFR’s unique commercialization approach assures the steady translation of proven technologies out of research and into stable commercial availability. The IFR is currently shepherding a multi-function neuromodulation system through the regulatory and commercialization stages, with the support from both philanthropy and traditional grants. She holds a BS in Biomedical Engineering from Johns Hopkins University and a MS in Biomedical Engineering from Case Western Reserve University.
