MDG May Forum
Medical Device Innovation Under the Affordable Care Act – Where are the Biggest Opportunity Areas for Growth?

Wednesday, May 7
5:30 - 8 p.m.
At Constant Contact, Waltham

Clayton Christiansen’s 2009 book “The Innovator’s Prescription” recommended the need for new business models to address a failing US healthcare system. 
Is the Affordable Care Act (ACA or Obamacare) one of the new business models to address this serious problem or an erroneous political accommodation?
This session will objectively address both sides of this very important topic including where Health Care is today in the United States and where we should be going?         

  • What is the intent of the ACA?
  • What are the implications to date of the ACA and expectations for the future?
  • How will the ACA impact the medical device and life sciences areas going forward?
  • How will the ACA impact opportunities for future medical product development?
A distinguished panel of speakers will address these issues and provide their own perspectives of what we should expect to see from the ACA and future government and industry efforts in this area.   


MDG May 14 SIG
"One Stop Shop" for Product Design, Development and Manufacturing, Pros and Cons

Sponsored by:

Bridgemedica & Massachusetts Materials Research

Wednesday, May 14
5:30 - 8 p.m.

At BridgeMedica Headquarters, 111 Forbes Boulevard, Mansfield, MA

Outsourcing of a medical device company’s Product Development and Manufacturing as individual services has been common over the past few decades and has continued to grow into a competitive sub-industry. The combination of performing these services together under one roof is unique and has many advantages (and some disadvantages) that will be analyzed through this lively discussion.

Technical Start Ups up to the large fortune 500 Device companies continue to utilize and rely on these services as they have come to better understand the value of both cost and timeline saving which address the needs for their business. As the Medical Device industry has become more competitive on performance, cost and time to market, their partners must continually satisfy these needs and continue to expand their capabilities.

Join us for an expert panel discussion on the Pros and Cons of the true aspects of a “One Stop Shop" partner!

MDG June Special Event
The Year of the Brain: Advances in Imaging, Diagnostics and Therapeutic Delivery

Wednesday, June 11
3:30 - 8 PM

At Foley Hoag, LLC, Seaport District, Boston

Our understanding of the brain – the most important and least well understood organ of the human body – is evolving rapidly, in large part due to the ongoing development of exciting neural imaging technologies. These advances have created the potential for revolutionary advances in objective or pre-­€symptomatic diagnosis and treatment of a wide array of neuropsychiatric conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, depression, stroke, injuries, and brain cancers. But significant challenges remain to be overcome through translational research and improved technologies for treatment targeting and therapy delivery.


Join a distinguished panel of researchers and clinicians for a discussion of the current state of neuroscience, promising biopharma and device industry initiatives, and future prospects for the treatment of neurological disorders.
