Biomaterials and Medical Products Commercialization SIG *BTI*

Timeslot: Friday, April 23, 2021 - 11:00am to 12:30pm
Track: Industry
Room: Virtual


B&MPC SIG members exchange ideas and experiences about the commercialization of medical products dependent upon biomaterials for utility and efficacy. Society for Biomaterials members, ranging from students to veterans in the field, will find an open forum to explore issues facing commercial biomaterials, such as regulations, patents, litigation, reimbursement for the resultant medical device, manufacturing and distribution; as well as perceptions of safety and patient benefits. Translation from development to marketing of safe and innovative medical products is challenged by the inconsistent availability of biomaterials in the shadow of these concerns, and a politically lively healthcare arena. Join the Biomaterials and Medical Products Commercialization SIG to enhance your knowledge and coping skills in the dynamic healthcare community.
