Date:7/26/2013

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va., July 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- HemoShear, LLC, a leading developer of human-relevant systems for drug development and discovery, today announced that Dr. Brian R. Wamhoff, co-founder of HemoShear, was invited to present his recommendations on improvements to the U. S. government's Small Business Technology Transfer program to stimulate translation of new discoveries from academia to the marketplace.  Dr. Wamhoff's testimony was given on Wednesday at a hearing of the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Science, Engineering and Technology for the purpose of guiding the draft of new legislation entitled "Innovative Approaches to the Technology Transfer Act of 2013".  Dr. Wamhoff was the only industry representative selected to present to the Committee.

Dr. Wamhoff is currently Vice President of Research and Development for HemoShear LLC, a biotechnology research company that is transforming the productivity and success rates of new drug R&D in the pharmaceutical industry.  He was formerly Associate Professor at the University of Virginia Department of Medicine, Cardiovascular Division, where he co-invented the HemoShear technology with Dr. Brett Blackman.  

"Having transitioned recently from academic researcher to entrepreneur, I benefitted from the creativity and resources that academic environments provide, while also encountering cultural challenges of translating a new technology from a university lab to a commercial enterprise.  My fellow academic researchers would benefit from appropriate incentives to translate their science, yet at the same time they need structure and accountability," said Dr. Wamhoff.
