The Cardiovascular Device Innovation Summit is a day and a half of interactive discussions with full audience participation focused on EU/US innovation pathways for new interventional devices.  Leading UK policy makers, NIH and NIHR funders, MHRA and FDA device regulators, VC funders, bioengineers, clinicians, legal and both start-up and mature device industry will provide a realistic and global perspective of current pathways and “sticking points” to enable and facilitate cardiovascular device development from early concept to clinical evaluation and market commercialization.  Our goal is to engage in an open critical dialogue of experts to provide insight into the global landscape of device innovation in specific therapeutic areas which include:

•    Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation and NeuroProtection devices
•    Percutaneous Mitral Devices
•    Next generation Drug Eluting Stents and Bioresorbable Scaffolds

Audience participation will be actively encouraged to provide input on clinical need and perspectives.
