During this workshop, Scott Corey will provide guidance on the transition from research to product development, including a discussion of the pitfalls of waiting too long or rushing to development too soon.

This interactive workshop will walk through the development of a hypothetical medical device with breakout sessions where the audience will work through critical steps in the process.
