After this episode, we're going to take a week or two sabbatical in order to wrap up our big project. In the meantime, have a listen to what we thought Skraps would be vs. what it has become - and maybe reach back and take a listen to one of our many, many amazing guests.
Daniel Powell and Navid Khodaparast are getting on peoples' nerves. No, really. They're disrupting everything you know, or think you know, about opioid use disorders and tackling the hardest part of helping people break free of the vice grip of addiction - acute withdrawal.
Howard is an MD and together with his friend and professional colleague, Mark Gelfand has created some of the landmark medical device companies in cardiology.
Arun and JoJo sat down with this year's Conference Co-Chairs, Professor Thomas Stieglitz and Professor Silvestro Micera to find out what makes this particular conference so special
Join us for part 2 of the coverage on what it means to be and feels like a fellow in the Cleveland NeuroDesign Innovation Fellowship Program run collaboratively by the Case Western Reserve University and Cleveland Clinic. Here we are joined by the inaugural cohort comprising: Efstathios Kondylis, Swarna Solanki, Patrick Smith and Nick Couturier with strong recognition for a Case Western Biomedical Engineering Alum, Michael Ackermann. The next cohort applications are now open: https://www.clevelandneurodesign.org/application Each of them have a unique story that led them to this point. They walk us through what drove them here, how the process was, their experiences, what they learned, gained and more importantly implement moving forward. This one is surely one not to miss, as it exposes what it means to be in a program that teaches scientists and engineers how to innovate based on need., a principle well documented by the Stanford Biodesign.

It is not often that we get to cover and you get to hear the story of an innovation design program. This is part 1 of the chat on Cleveland Neurodesign Innovation Fellowship Program with Andy Cornwell of Case Western Reserve University and the Cleveland Clinic and the faculty at the program.
What is the difference between intelligence and wisdom and why should you care? Dr. Robert Sternberg introduces us to his theories of adaptive intelligence and his triangular theory of love. He provides insights as to how our society misdirects and prioritizes our focus on exactly the traits that lead us down untenable social and political paths. He also proves to us once and for all that it's a bad idea to use an IQ test to get a first date.
There is a Vietnamese proverb that reads "Brothers and sisters are as close as hands and feet." Theo and Stavros Zanos are perhaps one of the best personifications of this notion. They are independent, they accomplish vastly different things, yet they are perfectly paired and, at the end of the day, part of the same system.
We try to capture myriad voices on Skraps, but this one is legendary. Truly. If you don't trust us, we have a few testimonials to prove it. Dr. Robert Hamlin is a DVM and Professor Emeritus at The Ohio State University (please don't get Arun started on his Buckeyes) and he knows more about the heart (animals and humans) than any single person has a right to.
