MedTech innovation leaders gathered at the University of Texas in San Antonio to share their expertise with up-and-coming biomed talent. The Health Cell, a life sciences professional development and advocacy organization, created a pilot workshop series Developing and Clinically Introducing Medical Technologies. The four-part workshop focused on enabling scientists to become entrepreneurs began in October of 2016.
President of Nelson Laboratories, Jeffery Nelson, participated on a panel during the third workshop held on Monday, January 16, 2017. The focus of this panel was research, product development, manufacturing, verification, and validation.
“The Health Cell concept is a great way to support the growing Med Tech industry sector in San Antonio,” said Jeffery Nelson. “I was impressed by the group and honored to be invited to participate in their learning process.”
The need to educate bioscience professionals spurred the creation of this workshop series,” reported The Rivard Report. “Participants will learn how to develop a medical technology or MedTech device from concept, where patient needs are identified and a market is selected, to product development, testing, and manufacturing, all the way to clinical trials and market introduction.”
The fourth and final workshop in the series will include the topic of financing the pathway followed by a presentation of awards on February, 13, 2017.
