Santa Maria creates commercial gains

40under40: As the creator of two medical devices, Peter Santa Maria is determined to help Perth scientists and doctors commercialise their research and inventions.

Peter Santa Maria left Perth in 2012 to undertake a medical fellowship at Stanford University determined to utilise his tenure to enhance his surgical training knowledge and skills.

He did that, and more, upon his return to Western Australia from the elite Californian research and teaching institution three years later.
