David R. Walt

Frustrated by a “technology approach” to medical progress, David was motivated to join the field and bring up-and-coming technologies to clinical applications where they were not previously used. David advocates for technology to address “real needs” in clinical settings, not just to make use of novel innovations. It’s no surprise, then, that he believes developments in sample preparation and handling have been sidelined, partly due to excessive focus on new measurement technologies. He is currently Professor of Biologically Inspired Engineering at the Wyss Institute, Harvard Medical School, and Professor of Pathology at Brigham and Women’s Hospital.
