MassBio Drugs are from Mars, Devices from Venus: Understanding the Value of Opposite Perspectives

March 23, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am

Undertaking combination product development is, at best, a hybrid approach requiring a thorough analysis of both.  Understanding the value of the opposite perspective is the first step in taking advantage of this potential.


Our panel of industry experts representing pharma, device and clinician points of view examine issues distinguishing the drug from the device and the value of synergy including: timelines, investment levels, equity returns, regulatory requirements and clinical benefit.


This Forum is free for MassBio members and is open to nonmembers for a $35 fee.
