Who Is Canis Lupus?

My name is Benjamin E. Nelms. I am an inventor, scientist, and entrepreneur with a main focus in the radiation therapy industry but with widening interests and projects. My design company, Canis Lupus LLC, was founded in 2005. Canis Lupus has brought many successful products to market across multiple vendors and has consulted on experimental design and scientific endeavors for many clinical and academic institutions. Prior to Canis Lupus, I worked eight years in the treatment planning industry, starting as a medical physicist and ending in executive management. Before that, I received my Ph.D. in Medical Physics from the University of Wisconsin in 1997 and graduated summa cum laude in Physics from the University of Missouri in 1992..
