Highlights of the Materials, Medicine, and Nanotechnology Summit, Coming to Cleveland on October 2-5

Shaping the future of medical devices and implants, an historic gathering of clinicians and engineers will participate in the Materials, Medicine, and Nanotechnology Summit hosted by Cleveland Clinic, ASM International and Nano-Network, October 2-5 in Cleveland. Highlights include:

MEMS Commercialization Panel -- Held during the Wednesday evening banquet, this panel will describe the multidisciplinary collaboration and business experience required to translate new and novel MEMS concepts from the engineering laboratory into successful medical products for clinical use by doctors and patients. The unique obstacles and pathways characteristic to commercialization of MEMS for implantable medical devices will be discussed by representative company executives and entrepreneurs. The panel will be moderated by Shuvo Roy, Ph.D., Co-Director of the BioMEMS Laboratory at the Cleveland Clinic Lerner Research Institute, Department of Biomedical Engineering.

Seminars on Materials for Medical Devices -- Over the past two years, ASM has provided material and process-based seminars to more than 1,000 medical device professionals. Now for the first time in Cleveland, ASM will hold four popular MPMD seminars concurrently on Monday, October 2. Morning seminars will answer the needs of engineers and materials professionals, while afternoon seminars are designed for clinicians and medical practitioners. (Separate registration is required.) Topics include:

  • Basic Metallurgy for the Medical Device Engineer:
  • Fracture, Fatigue and Corrosion for Medical Device Engineers:
  • Nitinol for Medical Devices:
  • Polymers for Medical Devices:

Plenary Sessions -- On Tuesday and Wednesday, October 3-4, plenary speakers will cover the spectrum of materials-related challenges in medicine:

  • Orthopedics and Spinal Disorders (Edward C. Benzel, M.D., Cleveland Clinic and Dana Medlin, Ph.D., South Dakota School of Mines and Technology)
  • Cardiovascular (Leonard Golding, M.D., Cleveland Clinic and Alan Pelton, Ph.D., Nitinol Devices and Components, a J&J Company)
  • Neurology (Ali Rezai, M.D., Cleveland Clinic and Krishna Venugopalan, Ph.D., Codman and Shurtleff, a J&J Company)
  • Nanotechnology (Michael Gertner, M.D., Stanford University; Samuel Wickline, M.D., Barnes-Jewish Hospital at Washington University Medical Center; Steven A. Toms, M.D., Cleveland Clinic, and Michael N. Helmus, Ph.D., Advance Nanotech)
  • Engineered Biomaterials (Vincent C. Hascall, Ph.D., Cleveland Clinic; Antony Calabro, Ph.D., Cleveland Clinic; Jonathan Baskin, M.D., Case Western Reserve University)
  • Minimally Invasive Surgery (Peter Rasmussen, M.D., Cleveland Clinic; Roy Greenberg, M.D., Cleveland Clinic; Sanjay Shrivastava, Ph.D., Abbott Vascular Devices)

Keynote Sessions -- On Wednesday and Thursday, October 4-5, the program divides into tracks on Nanomedicine and on Materials and Processes for Medical Devices.

  • Nanomedicine features sessions on Biomedical Sensors, Drug Delivery, Tissue Engineering and Bioscale Diagnostics.
  • Materials and Processes features sessions on Surface Modification and Coatings, Nanoparticles and Nanomaterials, Failure Analysis and Startup to Commercialization.

Attendees are encouraged to register by 4 p.m. September 28 to pay a fee as low as $195. After 4 p.m. on the 28th, registration fees will increase to $895 for all attendees.

The Cleveland Clinic Foundation Center for Continuing Education designates this educational activity for a maximum of 24.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s). Physicians should only claim credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity. This activity may be submitted for American Osteopathic Association Continuing Medical Education credit in Category 2.
