Click here to watch the video version of this podcast.

In this episode of the OIS Retina Podcast, host Firas Rahhal, MD, is joined by legendary vitreoretinal specialist and serial entrepreneur, Mark Blumenkranz, MD, MMS. It hasn’t always been smooth sailing in the start-up ship, but Dr. Blumenkranz persevered and now shares his proven recipe for ophthalmic innovation. (Hint: It starts with an unmet need.)

Dr. Blumenkranz also talks about his investment/incubation firm Lagunitas Biosciences and drug delivery start-up Kedalion Therapeutics – which, he claims, will be his last CEO position. We’ll have to see it to believe it, but in the meantime, let’s enjoy watching the master bring some more medical magic to patients.
