Jack is the founding Director of the Prototype Development and 3D Print Lab at the University of Central Florida’s Institute for Simulation and Training. His focus is developing new approaches and uses of technology to simulate and teach healthcare interactions and procedures. Technology and techniques he specializes in are rapid prototyping, 3D printing, and additive manufacturing to improve designs, create prototypes and test devices. Additionally, he deploys this knowledge to implement a cost-effective development model.
Previous to this, he spent a number of years at the University of Minnesota Medical School conducting similar research. In an earlier venture, Mr. Stubbs started a research and development company which created the intellectual property which resulted in over 50 patents, including the Airseal trocar for laparoscopic surgery which is now the trocar of choice for robotic surgery having been used in over 700,000 surgeries globally. He led this company from its founding in 1996 until its sale in 2010.
