Innovation Day Celebrates Cincinnati Children’s Culture of Innovation

Cincinnati Children’s will celebrate its annual Innovation Day on Jan. 31, 2023, with a Pediatric Grand Rounds livestreamed panel discussion about commercializing a medical technology by creating a start-up company.  Immediately following will be the presentation of the 2023 Innovation Excellence Awards.  

Commercializing a Digital Health Technology: The Origin Story of Clarigent Health.   

This Pediatric Grand Rounds panel features Tracy Glauser, MD, associate director, Cincinnati Children’s Research Foundation; Don Wright, Founder, President, and CEO, Clarigent Health; and Mike Venerable, CEO, CincyTech.  

Clarigent Health is a start-up in Mason, OH, based on technology created at Cincinnati Children’s by John Pestian, PhD, MBA and Tracy Glauser, MD. Their research led to the development of a clinical decision support tool application that aims to predict suicidality and is currently in the commercialization stage.  

This event begins at 8 am. It will be livestreamed and held in person in Sabin Auditorium. Refreshments will be served. 

Innovation Excellence Awards Ceremony and Celebration   

Innovation is about making a meaningful impact on those around us, including the colleagues in our institution, the neighbors in our communities, and our patients. In light of this mission-driven purpose, Cincinnati Children’s Innovation Ventures and the Cincinnati Children’s Research Foundation launched the Cincinnati Children’s Innovation Excellence Awards.

Now in its second year, the event recognizes Cincinnati Children’s innovators whose licenses have generated a financial reward for the institution.  Research Foundation Director Tina Cheng, MD, MPH, will serve as moderator. Innovation Ventures staff will be on hand to answer questions from immediately following the awards. This event begins at 9:30 am and will be held in-person in Sabin Auditorium.  Refreshments will be served.
