Medical device innovation is a bridge between formal biomedical engineering education and a professional career, while translating scientific research to market. As we all know, bringing medical devices from concept to commercialization can be difficult. The Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES) Boston Industry Chapter and the Healthcare PioneersTM group are presenting an evening Forum (with a live video broadcast option for registered members) to address key success factors and discuss case studies in medical device innovation. Here are few of the questions we will be addressing:

• Intellectual property and how to protect it

• Business development

• Engaging doctors in medical device innovation

Panel Speakers:

Ms. Karin Gregory, MPH, managing partner at Furman Gregory Deptula LLC, will share her experience of over 30 years in the healthcare industry in addressing tips and pitfalls in bringing medical innovation to market.

Dominic J. F. Tong, M.D. CEO and Principal at Del Mar Medical & Radiology Services.  Dr. Tong will talk about his experience as a medical director for multiple medical technology companies across the country, as well as about starting an academic spinoff in the field of medical imaging.

Gabriel Gruionu, PhD, co-owner and manager, Restore Surgical LLC and Medical Product Development. LLC. Dr. Gruionu will address the innovation social network in academia, how we can connect and align different key players for successful medical innovation inside and outside universities. He will illustrate his concepts with examples from three academic start-up companies from the US and Europe.

By sharing thoughtful process and best practices in presentation and question & answer formats, the speakers will provide insights into the wide range of issues any biomedical engineer should consider as they contribute as team members and leaders of new device and drug development programs.
