Jim Chomas, PhD

President and CEO at Surefire Medical


Having spent his graduate studies and more than a decade investigating better ways to image cancer, Jim understands that solid tumors possess features that make them difficult to detect and treat.

Jim co-founded Surefire Medical in 2009 to develop novel drug delivery systems that is designed to overcome the pressure barriers posed by solid tumors. He is a prolific inventor and medical device engineer. He has authored more than 25 patents and has led multiple teams to take products from concept to market.

This is his first time at DDP and he hopes to start conversations with therapy manufacturers who are interested in improving the effectiveness, safety and differentiation of their oncology products – whether in early phase of development or in the mature stage of the product’s lifecycle.
