Christine Luk, MBE
Associate Principal, Fannin Innovation Studio
I am an Associate Principal at Fannin Innovation Studio focusing on medical device commercialization. I am the project lead for ChorioAnchor, a device that enables safer minimally-invasive fetal surgery procedures, and part of the steering committee for the Southwest national Pediatric Device innovation Consortium.
A Houston transfer from Oklahoma City, I received a BA in Biochemistry and Cell Biology with a minor in Global Health Technologies from Rice University in 2018. Interested in furthering my studies in medical device development, in 2019, I received a master’s in bioengineering in the Global Medical Innovation program from Rice. While completing my master’s, I co-founded LilySpec, a startup developing devices for women’s health and worked at the Johnson & Johnson Center for Device Innovation at the Texas Medical Center to develop novel electrophysiology devices.
