Eri Hirumi, regulatory affairs specialist at MicroVention, a rapidly growing medical device company that has pioneered the development of catheter-based, minimally invasive, neuroendovascular technologies, spoke earlier this year at MD&M West about EU MDR/IVDR device certification and recertification and about how post-market surveillance and clinical follow-up data to could help meet FDA and EU MDR requirements. She found that the conference allows participants and speakers alike to "come be a creative force in the medical device industry, as the conference provides an exciting opportunity to efficiently get up to speed on the latest regulatory and quality issues, meet suppliers, and network with friends old and new.””

Likewise, another MD&M West 2019 speaker, Dave Saunders, chief technology officer at Galen Robotics, a company developing a minimally invasive surgical robot platform for potential physician use in otolaryngology, spine surgery, and tissue reconstruction, found the conference to be “one of the largest and best events for engineers to get their technical learning needs met and an ideal place to find new vendors and options for components and services.”

We’ve just opened the call for speakers for the 2020 MD&M West Conference, and we’re aiming for another powerful event. R&D, design, product development, and process and quality engineers are encouraged to share their innovation strategies and tactics to move medtech forward! If you’ve got such a strategy, apply today to speak at the 2020 MD&M West Conference, February 11-13 at the Anaheim Convention Center. The deadline to apply is August 30th, 2019.

We’re looking for R&D, design, and front-end product development engineers working for finished medical device manufacturers to speak, lead panels, or host roundtable discussions. We’d love to hear from you about your areas of expertise – your knowledge can help shape the future of medical device innovation and product development. The MD&M West Conference is accepting topic proposals in four topics areas:

  • New Technologies & Next-Gen Design
  • Product Development& User-Centered Design
  • Technical Solutions
  • Quality & Regulatory Updates

We’d like medtech engineers like you to play a role in the 2020 MD&M West Conference, which can only help benefit the medical device community. As Hirumi says, “This conference, in particular, is where you're not only exposed to the constantly shifting medical device industry, you can help to mold it.”
