Conference Topics

  • Worldwide healthcare trends: market drivers, demographic factors, government policy effects.
  • Business aspects: fundraising, reimbursement, technology transfer, regulatory compliance, company formation, recruiting, and market research.
  • Digital health: wireless devices, body area networks, online services, genomics, and personal genetic information.
  • Sensors: pressure, thermal, radiation, flow and magnetic sensors used in medical devices as well as implanted systems.
  • Diagnostics: portable assaying and sample preparation of blood, urine, cells, tissues, bodily fluids. For example, microfluidic and lab-on-a-chip devices to diagnose diseases in portable instruments and smaller sized bench top systems.
  • Health screening: preventive medicine such as early detection of cancer through consumer, over-the-counter devices that are to be used on a day-to-day basis.
  • Individualized treatment: integration of diagnostics with therapy and treatment on portable, smart lab-on-a-chip devices; for example, treatment is to be specifically based on the exact disease variation as well as the patient genotype and current health factors.
  • Drug delivery systems: both transdermal and implanted techniques; for example, micro needles that provide convenience and precisely measured amounts of dispensed drugs. Smart, MEMS based drug delivery systems also enable continual drug delivery monitoring and improve patient compliance.
  • Tissue engineering: experimental (R&D) and clinical techniques to biologically fabricate artificial tissues and organs such as teeth and liver.
  • Organ prosthesis: artificial cochlea and cornea structures made from silicon and other standard MEMS materials.
  • R&D tools: biological arrays and assays to understand the response of cell in vitro to a variety of chemical, thermal and mechanical stimuli.
  • Surgery and minimally invasive procedures: micro surgical tools as well as neural stimulation and measurement electrodes.
