NGVR #13: Medical XR - The Future of Healthcare using Immersive Technology


With analysts predicting markets for VR, AR, and MR in healthcare to reach an estimated market value up to $10 billion by 2023, it's time we at Non-Gaming VR take a look at some of the local companies playing key roles in the intersection of health and emergent technologies. Join us at the Microsoft Reactor for a panel discussion, demos, and networking centered around exploring how immersive technologies are being applied to treat addictions, anxiety, depression, pain, PTSD, and more.

We're happy to announce the following attendees participating in our panel:

John Spinale, General Partner, JAZZ Venture Partners
John brings a deep understanding of creating innovative consumer experiences, building brands and leveraging new and emerging platforms to JAZZ Ventures. He is a proven leader in consumer technology and digital media with a career spanning nearly 20 years of building, scaling and running high-growth companies of all sizes, from initial seed through to late stage operation. He's currently an investor and active advisor to many early-stage companies, in areas ranging from virtual reality platforms and content publishers to digital health apps for diagnosing and treating cognitive conditions like ADHD.

Roshan Sriram, Founder/CEO of MyndScape
Roshan started working on this idea as a senior at Carnegie Mellon University. After returning from a spiritual journey from the Himalayas I became entrenched in the CMU culture of tech and innovation. Conversations with several bright students and luminary professors sparked a creative inspiration in me that allowed me to envision a product that combines a nexus of cutting edge technologies to facilitate Mind development. I converted my final year into a self study immersion program where I partnered with faculty advisors in relevant technological disciplines to further develop the concept and build a version 0 prototype that I could showcase to investors and potential partners.

Lincoln Nguyen, Founder/CEO of Karuna Labs
Lincoln is a serial digital health entrepreneur having started one of the first online health records companies. He has spent a decade in software development having worked in bioinformatics, neuroscience, and high throughout data systems at Cisco.

Dr. Bruce Daniel MD, Professor of Radiology and Bioengineering, Stanford
Since 1995, Dr. Daniel has been at Stanford where his clinical and research focus has been on Magnetic Resonance imaging for breast cancer, and for guiding procedures. He became involved in mixed reality and started a collaboration with Kevin Colins and his team in the Analog group at Microsoft to develop mixed-reality to plan, and hopefully one day guide surgery for breast cancer. His team’s work on mixed reality breast conserving surgery has won awards at the 2017 and the 2018 international society for magnetic resonance in medicine, and was featured in the “AR 4 Good” workshop at ISAMR 2017. Dr. Daniel is currently co-director of IMMERS, a new Incubator for Medical Mixed and Extended Reality at Stanford where, together with Professor Brian Hargreaves, he looks forward to continuing work on breast cancer, as well as broadening out to a variety of other medical problems where fusing medical images with patients could potentially improve medical outcomes. Bruce graduated from Harvard Medical School in 1990, and completed his Residency in diagnostic radiology at the University of Michigan in 1995. He is a Distinguished Investigator of the Academy of Radiology Research and a Fellow of the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering.
