Registration is free. Join the 700+ who have already registered by reserving your spot today.
The symposium, a forum for the growing medtech community in San Francisco, features leading speakers from industry, a special panel on strategic acquisitions, and lightning pitches by founders of selected medtech startups.
The event is produced by the Rosenman Institute, a University of California initiative based at UCSF Mission Bay. The institute helps entrepreneurs commercialize medical device technologies by forging connections with resources such as legal help, mentoring, funding, and industry partners.
Featured speakers at the conference include University of Pittsburgh professor Robert Gaunt, who led a team that developed a mind-controlled robot arm that can sense touch; Richard Rapoza, division vice-president at Abbott Vascular, to discuss unexpected consequences of clinical trial design; and Justin Roberts, vice-president of global marketing at Medtronic Heart Valve therapies, speaking about TAVR as a breakthrough therapy. Lisa Suennen, senior managing director at GE Ventures, will moderate the panel discussion on strategic acquisitions.
Through the afternoon, attendees will hear rapid presentations from the Rosenman Innovators: the founders of 10 startups selected in the 2017 cycle of a yearly competition to receive in-kind services from top providers and introductions to investors and industry partners.
A networking reception with speakers, founders, and attendees follows the conference.
The Rosenman Symposium is sponsored by Applied Materials, Johnson & Johnson Innovation, JPMorgan Chase, and Nipro.
