Focused Ultrasound Featured at Milken Institute Summit


The Foundation’s Director of Clinical Relationships, Suzanne LeBlang, MD, participated in a transformative panel discussion at the 2020 Milken Institute Middle East and Africa (MEA) Summit. The session, “Innovations Transforming Health-care Delivery,” focused on how health technology can make care faster and less invasive, but also make innovative therapies accessible to a global population. The panelists discussed promising new technologies – including focused ultrasound – and examined their potential to improve medicine, the challenges that exist to make them widely available, and how to leverage the data that they collect.

The Milken Institute is a nonprofit think tank that “catalyzes practical solutions to global challenges by connecting resources to those who need them.” One of its centers, FasterCures, is dedicated to saving lives by speeding up and improving the medical research system. The Milken Institute’s chairman, Michael Milken, is also a member of the Foundation’s Council.
