SANTA MONICA, Calif., Aug. 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The MD&M Minneapolis Conference returns to the Minneapolis Convention Center this October. This annual medical device conference provides attendees solutions to medical device design, development, regulatory and quality challenges. Conference sessions are led by top-level medical device professionals, members of the FDA, and industry experts on best practices and effective strategies in medical device manufacturing. The conference will be held from October 30-November 1, 2012. This year's event offers a refreshed agenda.
"I speak directly to the medical device R&D community every day researching the industry's most pressing challenges and have developed this year's MD&M Minneapolis conference agenda to address these needs. My research has led me to identify four key focus areas for the industry: regulations and compliance; quality and risk management; design and processing principles; and a new focus on innovations in technology. Attendees will benefit from a comprehensive agenda covering the classic challenges in the industry – process validation, human factors in design – but also benefit from learning about the innovations that are enabling next generation medical devices," said Leslie Green, Conference Program Director, MD&M Minneapolis.
New technical sessions at the MD&M Minneapolis Conference will cover 'Battery Technology in Medical Devices,' 'Implantable Electronics,' 'Smart Materials and Materials Selection,' and 'Manufacturing Strategies and Processing Technologies.'
Notable speakers include industry leaders from the FDA, CDRH, Medtronic, St. Jude Medical, GE Healthcare, Boston Scientific, NAMSA, University of Minnesota, and more. Conference sponsors include: Cirtec Medical, Interface Catheter Solutions, Teleflex Medical, Nusil Technology & ZinC.
This year, MD&M will be hosting a second conference focusing on the unique needs of cardiovascular device manufacturers (the only event of its kind). The MedTech Cardio Conference will address key issues in cardiovascular device design and manufacturing. MedTech Cardio takes place over two days on October 30 and 31, 2012 at the Minneapolis Convention Center, alongside the MD&M event. Attendees are granted admission to both the MD&M and MedTech Cardio Conferences with their entrance fee.
