Dr. Terri Butler works with faculty and students at the University of Washington and collaborating Pacific Northwest research institutions advising on commercialization pathways for biomedical technologies. She is the primary contact for the ITHS Drug and Device Advisory Committee and manages the WE-REACH Biomedical Innovation Bootcamp.
