Dr. Scott is a Sr. Manager, Pre-Clinical & Clinical Research Planning at C.R. Bard, Inc. (a global medical device company), and also an Adjunct Associate Professor in the Department of Molecular Pharmacology, Physiology & Biotechnology at Brown. Dr. Scott has been integrally involved with the development and launch of fifteen 510(k) cleared medical devices for General/Plastic Surgery within the US, several of which have also been marketed globally. Dr. Scott also has a keen interest and active product development focus in Surgical Sealants/Hemostats for General Surgery and Cardiovascular Surgery. Dr. Scott currently co-teaches BIOL 1120 (Biomaterials), and incorporates his medical device industry expertise into this class to enhance the overall student experience.
