3rd Annual Medical Device Investigator Initiated Studies Conference

10 Feb 2014 - 11 Feb 2014 - Raleigh-Durham, NC, USA

Bookmark and Share

Throughout the Medical Device industry, corporations are actively engaging with healthcare professionals to develop and execute Investigator Initiated studies, as a method of further researching and developing new and existing product lines. These exciting research studies hold tremendous value for manufacturers as well as the industry, as they continue to explore new uses for products that will ultimately streamline and improve healthcare delivery. However, as research budgets have constricted over the past several years, as pressure for results has increased, and regulatory reporting requirements have come on-line, both healthcare professionals as well as manufacturers are working to understand how to mutually benefit from these studies in a new and increasingly challenging environment.

Throughout the conference program, attendees will have an opportunity to engage and learn from a wide variety of stakeholders, including not only industry veterans, but also representatives from academic institutions, all of whom will provide important insight and clarity into this dynamic topic. As with all Q1 Productions conference programs, bringing together a range of the stakeholders involved in the topic will ensue all questions are brought to the table and addressed, guaranteeing a high return on investment for time spent at the conference program.
