Lunch & Learn with T. Stan Gregory
From Opportunity to Market: A Journey of Entrepreneurial Discovery As an engineer, you often think of the technology first and the customer second. The entrepreneurial journey of Thomas Stanley Gregory V, Ph.D., owner of RadonPRO Monitors and a senior engineer at Gregory Enterprises, began with learning to develop a manufacturable product based on a reachable market need. His experience allowed RadonPRO Monitors to rapidly develop while successfully navigating through regulatory hurdles.Throughhis time at Gregory Enterprises, Dr. Gregory oversaw all stages of design and development for a novel radon gas measurement platform that became RadonPRO Monitors’ principal product. There were EPA guidelines involving instruments and small-scale manufacturing and distribution that needed to be negotiated, as well as software and product development, courses and certifications, and strategic planning to comply with other federal and state regulatory and administrative barriers.Previously, Dr. Gregory was a postdoctoral research scientist and a graduate research assistant at theUniversity of Georgia Medical Robotics Lab, where he worked to develop MRI-enabled methods of quantifying arterial blood flow in real time and non-invasively. During his time as a postdoc, he also worked at the startup Infrared Rx, Inc. as a biomedical engineer to streamline and automate theimplementation of its key intellectual property and product line.Duringhis career, Dr. Gregory has developed bio-instrumentation for Ford MotorCompany, Toyota America and the U.S. Army Aeromedical Research Laboratory. He was awarded an ISMRM Merit Award, the John Paul Stapp Best Paper Award, and second place in the NHTSA ESV International Design Competition.Dr. Gregory holds a Ph.D. in engineering (biomedical) from the University of Georgia, an M.S. in biomedical engineering (bioinstrumentation) fromVirginia Tech and Wake Forest University, and a B.S. in applied biomedical engineering (bioinstrumentation) from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.Event DetailsMonday, Nov. 5, 2018Noon to 1 p.m.Center for Applied Genetic Technologies, Room 128/130111 Riverbend Road,Athens, GA 30602The event is free and open to the public.
