FUS Foundation and Koch Disruptive Technologies Discuss Advancing Focused Ultrasound
Neal F. Kassell, MD, the Founder and Chairman of the Focused Ultrasound Foundation, recently sat down (virtually) with Chase Koch, the President of Koch Disruptive Technologies, for an in-depth discussion about the field of focused ultrasound and how their organizations are working together to revolutionize therapy with this highly disruptive technology.
Today, we are launching a podcast and the first in a three-part blog series that was edited and condensed from their conversation. See links below to listen to the podcast or read the first blog which discusses KDT and Koch Industries, why they are excited about focused ultrasound, and their message to the community at large.

The second article in the series (in two weeks) will explore the state of the field as it transitions from research to commercialization, and KDT’s relationship with the Foundation as they pursue their shared goal of improving the lives of millions around the world with focused ultrasound in the shortest time possible.
And in the final installment to be shared in August, Dr. Kassell and Mr. Koch will discuss KDT’s current position in the field, future investment plans, and how they feel about spawning the first focused ultrasound “unicorn” (a privately held company with a valuation of more than one billion dollars) via Israeli manufacturer Insightec.
The articles will appear in our biweekly e-newsletters.
