Advancing Health Innovation into the Market through Science and Medicine

Recently, UT Health San Antonio has been sharing scientific discoveries with the public, highlighting how they have changed lives and will continue to do so in the future. The university has just welcomed a new team member, Anthony Francis, who is not a scientist but has experience in bringing products to market.

As the Associate Vice President of Innovation and Development at UT Health San Antonio, Francis believes that his outsider perspective can help enhance the impact of scientific discoveries. He emphasizes that universities often focus too much on technical merit and patent potential when commercializing products, but they should also consider whether the market actually cares about the product.

Francis is particularly interested in digital therapeutics such as the KIOS app, which helps individuals with substance use disorder in their recovery journey. He sees great potential in this area and aims to leverage technology to improve health outcomes. The collaboration between TPR and The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, known as Science & Medicine, explores how scientific discoveries in San Antonio are transforming the practice of medicine globally.
