Medical Entrepreneurship Speaker Series Presents Dr. James McKim

Dr. James McKim is a WMed Research Associate Professor in the Department of Biomedical Sciences, and founder and CEO of IONTOX. The 3rd WMed Medical Entrepreneur Speaker Series will focus on the WMed Innovation Center entrepreneurs who are also WMed faculty members. The purpose of the series is to help doctors, students, researchers, and entrepreneurs more deeply understand the multi-faceted nature of innovation and commercialization in healthcare. Although business and entrepreneurship are a significant part of this series, it is also about how healthcare products and services are brought to the market to improve patients’ lives.

Kalamazoo County Land Bank logo

The Kalamazoo Land Bank did robust community engagement around the vision and gave us something to work with that was solidly desired by people in the neighborhood. Having a vision meant we had to protect it. That’s something I thank the Land Bank for. It was difficult. It didn’t make anything faster or easier, but we got a better project in the end as a result of it.
