University of Minnesota's 6th annual Design of Medical Devices Conference to be held April 17-19

The University of Minnesotas Sixth Annual Design of Medical Devices Conference (DMD) will be held April 17-19, at the Radisson University Hotel, 615 Washington Ave. S.E., Minneapolis. The conference, designed to attract top leaders from industry and academia, will address major trends related to medical device design, policy, engineering, education and commercialization.

"The momentum this conference continues to generate clearly demonstrates the evolving interest and expertise in this field," said Art Erdman, University of Minnesota professor of mechanical engineering and DMD Conference co-director. Six years ago we had a vision to establish an event where leaders from academia and industry would converge to share the latest in medical device design. This vision has become a successful reality and continues to exceed even our own expectations.

The conference includes two days of technical sessions, including topics such as medical electronics, surgical robotics, medical imaging, dental devices and cardiovascular engineering. Conference attendees will also be able to observe a surgery that will be broadcast live via videoconference from the University of Minnesota Medical Center Fairview. There will also be a scientific poster session that gives students an opportunity to showcase their biomedical engineering related research while interacting with industry professionals.

Day three of the conference includes The Presidents 21st Century Interdisciplinary Conference: Inventing Medical Devices. Dean Kamen, entrepreneur and inventor of the Segway, and John Najarian, transplant surgeon and pioneer, will be among the keynote presentors.

University conference sponsors include The Biomedical Engineering Institute, The Institute of Technology, and the Academic Health Center. Key industry sponsors include Boston Scientific, Medtronic, St. Jude Medical, 3M, Life Science Alley, Merchant & Gould, Minnetronix and Oppenheimer.
