Location: Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, Lecture Theatre M6-502

Speakers: Robert Harrison, R&D Manager, Baylis Medical

Abstract: Medical technology innovation is an exhilarating journey: taking on an opportunity to deliver ideas and technologies that will transform healthcare for generations to come. Despite this promise, however, medtech innovators face significant hurdles. If not managed skillfully, patents, regulatory approval, reimbursement, market dynamics, business models, competition, financing, clinical trials, technical feasibility, and team dynamics can all prevent event the best idea from reaching patient care. In this talk, Robert will discuss rules of the road for medtech-based entrepreneurship, using Baylis Medical as a case study, to guide aspiring device entrepreneurs through all the challenges of getting an idea to market.
