itiveness: innovation and manufacturing," he said. "The national strategy released today will lead to the creation of jobs in Ohio and across the country while ensuring that the United States maintains an edge in the growing biomedical industry. Thanks to the remarkable work of Dr. Frank Douglas and the many stakeholders involved, the ABIA is leading the nation in advancing the American biomedical industry. Akron is once again on the map as a world leader in innovation, collaboration, and commercialization. I look forward to hearing of the Institute's continued progress and success."
"Part of our success in industry relies on our ability to meet patient needs while providing a useful product that is safe, efficient and cost-effective enough for purchasers to invest in," said Mike Hess, Vice President of Innovation Excellence at Medtronic. "We believe the adoption of these principles from all involved – whether they be in industry, academia, venture philanthropy or the public sector – will help to spur innovation in the biomedical sector."
"A common theme throughout this effort is ensuring innovators are supported through all stages of their development – from classroom to the commercialization of innovations," said Dr. Youseph Yazdi, Executive Director, Center for Bioengineering Innovation and Design, Johns Hopkins University. "In order to produce value-driven engineers, we must create educational environments in which our students practice Value-driven Engineering in a practical sense. In the white paper, we introduce a series of recommendations for increasing education around Value-driven Engineering focused on the development of critical partners, leveraging federal funding strategies and promoting workforce development."
The national Safe Haven Summit that ABIA convened in Washington, D.C., in March, included participation by a number of industry leading organizations such as the Cleveland Clinic, Johns Hopkins Univer
