MD+DI and MEMS Industry Group Announce the MEMS in Medical Devices Conference

BOSTON, October 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

MD+DI Conferences in conjunction with the MEMS Industry Group, announces the MEMS in Medical Devices conference - a one day program that will equip cutting edge engineers with the information needed to successfully integrate micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) into their medical devices.

This first-of-its-kind conference program was developed specifically to bring together medical device manufacturers, MEMS foundries and all stakeholders to uncover the untapped potential for MEMS in medical applications. Attend and gain a fundamental understanding of MEMS capabilities and functions, hear practical case studies from industry frontrunners, learn how to overcome challenges in integration, and build contacts by networking face-to-face with top innovators.

MEMS in Medical Devices will be held in Boston on November 27th and San Jose on December 3rd in order to bring this essential conference program to the medical device technology hubs on both coasts.

Karen Lightman, Managing Director at the MEMS Industry Group will be chairing MEMS in Medical Devices EAST in Boston on November 27th and Peter Himes, Vice President of Marketing and Strategic Alliances at Silex Microsystems will be chairing MEMS in Medical Devices WEST in San Jose on December 3rd.
