Santh Sathya: CEO of LuftCar, LLC

Santh Sathya joins host Richard Miles to discuss how his company, LuftCar LLC, is revolutionizing the realm of regional transportation, providing both sustainable and affordable multipurpose mobility vehicles.  Sathya and his company are in the process of developing hydrogen powered, modular, autonomous air and road mobility electric vehicles with vertical takeoff and landing: “A lot of people have to travel hundreds of miles to go to a large commercial airport to take an overseas trip or take a long-distance flight. So, what we are doing is promoting an alternative for those people to fly from their little hometowns, from the rural areas, from small cities to these bigger commercial airports and both those sides”.  In this episode, Sathya discusses how the movies he saw in his childhood inspired him to find a solution to the problems many face regarding regional transportation—only about 28% of the American population has access to air travel, because it is too tedious or expensive, but Sathya believes it does not have to continue to be this way. He believes inventors should collaborate and solve similar problems together. ...

Carlos Moreno: Chief Scientific Officer at ResonanceDx, Inc.

Carlos Monero joins host James Di Virgilio to discuss his medical diagnostic company, ResonanceDX, and his unconventional journey to becoming a medical researcher. Like many innovators, Carlos started his career in a different field, yet those experiences have proven to be beneficial: "It's not the traditional path. Most people started either going to med school or biology as their undergraduate major. I guess sometimes I wish I had maybe not been so focused on aerospace...but as it turns out, it worked out very well for me."   Carlos Monero is an Associate Professor at Emory University of Medicine, and the Co-Founder and Chief Scientific Officer at ResonanceDx, Inc. ResonanceDx placed in the Final Five for the Cade Prize Competition for Innovation in 2021. To learn more about ResonanceDx visit their website at resonancedx.com ...

Using a Computer Hands-Free

Mohit Patil and Parth Shah advise other future entrepreneurs on conceptualizing a company and its products: "Don't come up with a solution looking for a problem, that almost always never works out...what you need is a problem. A problem that the society has, a problem that people are desperate to get solved and then use your engineering mind to think, oh, how can I solve that problem?".   Mohit Patil and Parth Shah co-founded Abilitare, a company that provides hands-free access to computers and smartphones for people with hand disabilities. Their products include: the Abili headmouse, a head-wearable sensor that allows the user to control the mouse cursor using head motions instead of hands, an adaptive switch that can be used with feet, fists, or elbows, and Dwell toolbar, a mouse clicking software.   In this episode, Patil and Shah share the inspiration behind their ideas with host Richard Miles and recommend always having patience, especially when starting a new business.   Click the links below to learn more: Abilitare Products  Disability Technology TEDxLSSC by Jeff Paradee ...

A COVID-19 Antiviral Treatment

Dr. Jean-François Rossignol discusses the development behind a class of antiviral drugs, such as Nitazoxanide and Thiazolides, that stimulate immune cells, activating gene pathways that block viral transformation: "You're leading an entire population, and you give them a pill for treating their problems, and you cannot have any side effects, any toxicity, or any kind of things like that. You have to have a safe drug. And that's what we did."   Dr. Jean-François Rossignol is the Co-founder and Chief Scientific Officer at Romark Laboratories in Tampa, as well as a professor of Medicine and Infectious Disease at the University of South Florida. He is a scientist, medical chemist, and physician who developed groundbreaking treatments for parasitic diseases.   In this episode, Rossignol talks with host Richard Miles about his recent induction into the Florida Inventors Hall of Fame and shares his research on antiviral drug development. ...
