Academic Outreach

This year we have decided to update the academic committee to an Academic Outreach Committee to assist LSPA with getting the word out to our academic partners and encourage students and post docs to attend either the conference or present a poster.

Company Presentation

Help identify new and emerging companies to present during the Company Presentations portion of the Life Sciences Future - MedTech agenda. LSPA will handle follow up and assist with their presentation. Presenting companies are selected by a review committee using the following criteria: stage of development; intellectual property protection; expected time of next capital raise; whether the technology is licensable; and conference appeal to the MedTech industry or other potential partners.
