Michael Moore

Chief Executive Officer

Michael founded Pathware to address the challenges that he observed throughout his medical education at the University of Michigan. After two years of in-depth market assessment through entrepreneurial programs such as Fast Forward Medical Innovation’s fastPACE and VentureWell’s E-Teams and ASPIRE, Michael decided to take a leave from his medical education in October of 2018 to build Pathware to where it is today. In that time, he has built out the management team and advisory boards with experienced entrepreneurs and industry thought-leaders, developed, and filed patents for the core technology, and secured more than $700k in outside funding. This progress has enabled partnerships and discussions with organizations such as the THANC Foundation, Quest Diagnostics, Philips Healthcare, Michigan Medicine, Henry Ford Health Systems, and Mount Sinai.

 
 
 

Pathware is the third startup in which Michael has served in a senior management position which has provided a wide breadth of experiences and skills regarding team building, dispute management, fundraising, product development, and commercial strategy development. The specific organizations include; The West End Health Project (not-for-profit health provider in the underserved West End of Tuscaloosa, Alabama), Miles for Moms (multi-university not-for-profit supporting the eradication of Maternal and Neonatal Tetanus alongside UNICEF and Kiwanis International), Viastem (biotechnology startup commercializing technology from the University of Alabama for the dispersal of stem cell clumps in bioreactors via fluid shear stress), Soft Lesion Analytics (medical technology startup developing a micro-fluidic approach to rapid cancer cell isolation from needle biopsies for single cell analysis). These experiences from both the for-profit and non-profit sectors have provided a well-rounded understanding of strategic fundraising and team management.
