Larry Pierce, Ph.D., wins Audience Choice Award at Life Science Innovation Northwest Fast-Pitch Competition

Larry Pierce, Ph.D., a research scientist and co-founder of Precision Sensing, LLC, recently won the Audience Choice Award at the Life Science Innovation Northwest fast-pitch competition. Dr. Pierce made a one-minute pitch on Precision Sensing’s PRRT Vest project and conducted a three-minute Q&A, and his award was featured on GeekWire.

Precision Sensing is developing a new wearable technology to enable remote internal radiation dose monitoring and allow for precision treatment for patients with neuroendocrine cancers that are undergoing PRRT therapy. Dr. Pierce and Robert Miyaoka, Ph.D, a professor of Radiology and other co-founder of Precision Sensing, were awarded an STTR grant in 2020 to develop the PRRT Vest technology and are expecting to begin in-human trials of the technology this summer.

The co-founders were also recently awarded a National Institute of Health (NIH) grant.
