Bustling mixed-use Heights development M-K-T (600 N Shepherd Dr.) has been all the buzz lately, with new hip fashion shops such as Nollege and TAFT strolling in and Homestead Breakfast, Lunch & Later serving up breakfast to hungry shoppers. A recent opening party for Chloe Dao's new locale was all the rage on local IG stories.

Now, more good news for M-K-T shoppers: the center has announced a new mobile app, which helps visitors locate a retailer, easily check for upcoming events, or quickly look at what time their favorite restaurant or retailer is opening.

Users can download the app, created by Triten Real Estate Partners, here.

The new app (available for both Apple and Android users ) boasts a full directory of on-site retailers, wellness, restaurants, and corporate headquarters, according to a release. Location-aware maps help users navigate the development and scan images, descriptions, and store hours for each on-site business.

A full, up-to-date calendar of M-K-T's events will help plan what to where and when for scenesters.

"An over 200,000 square foot property can be intimidating to visitors and sometimes walkup signage and printed directories aren't enough", said Lisa Reyerse, marketing and brand director at Triten Real Estate Partner, in a statement.

"The M-K-T Heights mobile app allows our visitors to always have an up-to-date property directory, location-aware map, and a full calendar of on site events in their pocket at all times. The app is simple and easy to use, yet robust with information that our visitors need to help navigate and enjoy their time at M-K-T."

After being announced a few years ago, the M-K-T has slowly opened its stores and eateries over the past several months.

Optellum, a medical software startup based in the United Kingdom and has its United States HQ in Houston, has appointed Jason Pesterfield as CEO to lead growth in the U.S. clinical market. Optellum AI-based software enhances early lung cancer diagnosis and therapy with its medical device software platform, Virtual Nodule Clinic.

Pesterfield was previously the president and CEO of Veran Medical Technologies, a leader in image-guided lung cancer diagnosis. He brings 25 years of leadership experience in the medtech sector. Optellum was founded by Václav Potěšil, Lyndsey Pickup, Timor Kadir, Professor Sir Mike Brady, and Jérôme Declerck.

"It took us almost a year to find the right successor who shares our vision and has the right expertise to take Optellum on to the next stage of growth," says Potěšil in a news release. "I am really excited to work with Jason, to make Optellum's platform available to every clinician in the USA and around the world, and to help them diagnose their lung cancer patients as early as possible. With Jason on board, I can focus on advancing Optellum's vision to transform early lung cancer therapy through partnerships that harness the power of AI software combined with molecular diagnostics, robotics and interventional devices, and drugs."
