Georgia Institute of Technology

It takes about 10 years and $100 million to get a new medical device to market - $1 billion for a new drug. Most new solutions fail.

Pediatric Dermatologist Who Co-Founded Camp for Children Recognized for Care

American Academy of Dermatology

The American Academy of Dermatology has honored board-certified dermatologist Karen Wiss, MD, FAAD, as a Patient Care Hero for her role in treating a patient born with an extremely rare skin disease caused by a genetic mutation. The condition, known as recessive dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa (RDEB), is commonly called “the butterfly disease,” because it causes skin to be extremely fragile and blister easily after minor rubbing or scratching. It affects fewer than one in 1 million people.
