The 2015 Innovation Awards winners


Dr. Lisa Jennings, a clinical professor in the College of Medicine at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center, is the founder of CirQuest Labs and co-founder of Ariste Medical. CirQuest Labs is a multi-service specialty laboratory and direct marketer of clinical 
trial logistics to the pharmaceutical and medical device industries. She explains her endeavor as filling the gap in the pharmaceutical and device industries. Ariste Medical has developed a new class of implantable, drug-delivering devices to improve patient outcomes and lower costs of care by reducing complications associated with surgical procedures. Two things we all want when the time comes — lowered costs and complications. With these entrepreneurial efforts, and her teachings at UT, Dr. Jennings has had, and continues to have, a far-reaching impact on the scientific and medical communities in our city.
