At GCMI, medtech and medical device innovation are at the core of our efforts including our work within our industry leading preclinical CRO. While our team constantly focuses on the advancement of our sponsors’ journeys from concept to commercialization to cure, we actively seek to attend events that connect us with medtech innovators across the country and the globe. Several years ago, Dr. Jeremy Kimmel with ALung Technologies recommended the ASAIO conference in San Francisco. We are pleased to be headed back for the 2019 edition June 26-29.

“ASAIO (American Society for Artificial Internal Organs) is a world class society that has been in existence for [nearly 60] years. It strives to ‘save lives one medical device at a time.’ ASAIO’s mission is to provide a forum that globally and collaboratively promotes the development of innovative medical device technology at the crossroads of science, engineering, and medicine.”

GCMI’s considerable capabilities in preclinical research models, particularly for pediatric, heart and respiratory assist devices, ensure innovators in this space move efficiently through their development and regulatory pathways on their way to regulatory approval, exit or other inflection point – just like we have for many companies like ALung.

“T3’s recommendation for the model shift based on their experience and expertise was much more practical for this application based on our device’s capabilities and needs,” said Jeremy Kimmel, PhD Director of New Technology for ALung Technologies. “I am convinced this recommendation has accelerated our product refinement testing and preclinical trials saving ALung time and money at every step along the way.”

Are you evaluating the readiness of your pediatric, ECMO, artificial heart, ventricular or respiratory assist device for preclinical testing, need valuable feedback from clinicians, or the very best in surgical training for your device? Or do you just want to talk about the latest in medtech innovation? We want to connect with you at ASAIO 2019!
