Professional Statement

Dr. Stuart J. Corr is an Assistant Professor of Surgical Research within the Michael E. DeBakey Department of Surgery at Baylor College of Medicine. He concurrently holds the title of Director of Surgical Innovation and Technology Development.

Through this innovation role, Dr. Corr established and launched INSTINCT – the Interdisciplinary Surgical Technology and Innovation Center – whose objective is to design and build (incubate) surgical MedTech solutions to problems and needs identified by surgeons and healthcare providers.

INSTINCT incubator projects to date range from micro suturing devices; disposable laparoscopic systems for low resource settings; blood perfusion imaging for evaluating peripheral vascular disease; liver support systems; and artificial intelligence for enhanced liver transplant outcomes.

Dr. Corr also has 10+ years of research experience in the field of nanotechnology and radiofrequency hyperthermia – utilizing the bodies inherent bioimpedance properties to combat cancer. This research has led to 30+ peer-reviewed papers and book chapters, several grant awards, and recognition at a variety of national and international conferences. Current research projects underway include real-time FLIM-based cellular thermal imaging; high-throughput tumor treating field analysis; and single walled carbon nanotubes for cancer therapy.
