Pulling new medtech ideas out of the clinical mindspace into development and ultimately commercialization.
The Global Center for Medical Innovation is hosting an exclusive event for the Female Physician Entrepreneurs Facebook Group. Join three medtech mavens for an information packed 30-minute discussion on what it takes to pull new medical product ideas out of the clinical mind space and into development and ultimately commercialization.
Emily Blum -Pediatric Urologist at Georgia Urology and Medical Affairs Liaison at Global Center for Medical Innovation (GCMI) – Dr. Emily Blum works as a Medical Affairs Liaison for GCMI. In her role with the organization she hopes to be a bridge to the medtech ecosystem of Atlanta, bringing in new programs and innovative ideas from local physician entrepreneurs and serve as an internal resource for program development teams to ask relevant medical/clinical questions.
Sarah Cohen -Senior Engineering Project Manager for GCMI – Sarah Cohen brings more than ten years of medical device product development experience, from the perspective of large corporations and small startups. She has been directly involved with many aspects of the product lifecycle, from determining clinical needs to developing requirements and testing strategies to supporting clinical trials for fully developed devices.
Dershika Patel – Project Engineer, Pediatrics & Quality Engineer – Dersi leads project management for all pediatric projects and is working alongside pediatric surgeons and clinicians to develop innovative devices for pediatric patients. In addition, she manages complex electromechanical projects, navigating multiple vendors and resources to help move complex concepts through the development cycle.
Some questions they will explore are:
1. What does that pathway from concept to design to prototyping to commercialization look like?
2. What are the key steps and must dos for a budding entrepreneur?
3. Where are the biggest landmines that will kill what should be a successful innovation?
