OSMSC

Mission

The mission of Open Source Medical Software Corporation (OSMSC) is to be a leader in the ongoing revolution of software development paradigms and open-data initiatives to drive future medical research and innovation.

At OSMSC, we realize that the key to unlocking the next generation of technologic advancement in the fields of medical imaging and computer-aided patient specific modeling is to reduce the traditional barriers between scientific breakthroughs and clinical practice. In particular, clinicians and researchers must have access to a common platform provided by an open source code architecture that can be effectively used to treat patients as well as for clinical research.

OSMSC Core Team

Nathan M. Wilson, Ph.D., M.B.A.

 Nathan Wilson President & CEO

Education: Ph.D. Stanford University, M.B.A. UCLA Anderson School of Management.

Before founding Open Source Medical Software Corporation in May 2009, Dr. Wilson was the President and co-founder of Cardiovascular Simulation, Inc (CSI). While at CSI, Dr. Wilson was the PI on a SBIR contract to develop an open data repository of cardiovascular and pulmonary model data for the NIH/NHLBI. Prior to CSI, he led the open source code release of SimVascular. SimVascular is an application for cardiovascular simulation released as part of the NIH-funded Simbios project at Stanford University. He has published extensively with over 30 peer-reviewed journal and conference publications on medical imaging processing, computer simulation, and software engineering topics.
