      Over the last several months, Surgery has published several manuscripts describing various aspects of innovation and entrepreneurship. Initially, we focused these articles on the fundamental concepts of innovation, including the basics of patent law, technology transfer, and seed funding, to highlight a few examples. Now, we wish to introduce to you programs or models of innovation from groups that have been successful in this space. Dr. Mark Cohen, associate chair in Surgery for Innovation and Entrepreneurship and an endocrine surgeon from the University of Michigan, has solicited manuscripts from leading innovators and entrepreneurs who have successful programs or models for the developing aspiring entrepreneurs. In the next several months, Surgery will publish these articles rich in ideas and fundamentals necessary for entrepreneurial success. We hope that you enjoy these papers and will reach out to the experts who graciously devoted the time to educate us about this exciting topic.
