We will return to our normal Monday meeting time of 11:30 AM. As we approach the fall, we would like to introduce an interesting technology out of the Center for Advanced Surgical Intervention Technology (CASIT). The CASIT facility, which works toward improving the state of the art in surgical precision and accuracy, will be presenting a trans-urethral 3D imaging catheter. Applications for this device focus on high-level prostate imaging and needle based interventions.
Additionally, we will facilitate an open-ended discussion about the importance of design in the marketing of successful biomedical products. Design theory will be based off of the strategy of RKS, a comprehensive design firm that has created compelling product and brand design for start-up and Fortune 50 companies in its 30 year history.  Please join us in a surely intriguing discussion that will look at innovation and technology through an entirely new and important lens. We look forward to seeing you!
