Lumos Diagnostics: Jerome Adams
Former US Surgeon General Jerome Adams has joined Lumos Diagnostics as a strategic healthcare adviser. He also will be appointed to the Sarasota, Florida-based firm's medical advisory board. Adams was the surgeon general during the Trump administration. At Lumos, he will advise Lumos on the deployment of its point-of-care diagnostic technologies, including the launch of the FebriDx test, which can differentiate whether a person has a bacterial or viral infection within 10 minutes. The test is available in Europe, the UK, Canada, and Australia and is under regulatory review in the US, the firm said. Adams is currently an assistant professor of clinical anesthesia at Indiana University and a staff anesthesiologist at Eskanazi Health.
