Presenting the 2017 John J. Humpal award to Professor Alan Cottenden, PhD was Christopher Payne, MD, Emeritus Professor of Urology at Stanford University. As he presented the award, Dr. Payne stated, “We are so fortunate that many years ago, a young engineer made a potentially suicidal career decision to focus his attention on the incontinence world. What a difference he has made! His own research has had great impact but his value to the field has been multiplied many times over through his tireless efforts at education throughout the professional spectrum. Doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, and scientists have trained with Alan. Most importantly, Alan has consistently shown the ability to connect those from differing fields to produce new insights and new incontinence products that help patients.”Continue reading
