Harris Nisar moved from the Chicago area to the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign where he studied Bioengineering. He was involved in many projects while at school, namely the redesign of a surgical tool and the development of a dynamic cellular incubator. He also was involved in research in a cell and tissue lab where he studied the effects of forces on stem cells. Passionate about the simulation space and product development, he began working for Jump Simulation where he hoped to help improve outcomes and lower health care costs through innovative simulation training of medical professionals. Here he has worked on a variety of projects from simulation trainer design, to enhancing the simulation community, to spreading the power of STEM education across the Peoria area.
