In this video below, the Working 2 Walk 2016 audience asks questions about the presentations by Ms. Moynahan and Dr. Huhn.
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.
Stephen Huhn, MD, FACS, FAAP, received his medical degree from the University of Arizona College of Medicine in 1987 and did his neurosurgery residency at the University of Maryland in 1993. Following neurosurgery training, he completed a NIH-funded Neuro-Oncology Fellowship at UCSF in 1995 and an additional Fellowship in Pediatric Neurosurgery at Children’s Memorial Hospital at Northwestern University in Chicago in 1996. He was appointed Chief of Pediatric Neurosurgery at the Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital at Stanford University in 1996, a position held until leaving Stanford in 2007 to pursue full-time translational research as Vice-President and CMO at StemCells, Inc. He holds fellowships in the American College of Surgeons and the American Academy of Pediatrics, and he is board certified in both Neurological Surgery and Pediatric Neurosurgery.
