Meet the two former Johns Hopkins residents disrupting the wound care market
Ned Swanson and Denver Lough were plastic surgery residents at Johns Hopkins when they made a choice that would change the course of their lives – they decided to drop out and start a business. Lough had a technology that they thought could help patients if it ever made it to the market, but their intensely busy schedules at Hopkins didn’t allow for a side project to grow into something bigger. “To go down the academic road, get grant after grant, write paper after paper, it’s never gonna make it to these patients that we’re trying to treat every day,” Swanson told Drug Delivery Bus...
