“When I had first heard of the passing of Dan Rosenman, I realized how quickly life could be taken and truly wanted to do more. During my time at Heartport, I had the pleasure of working with Dan on several projects and admired his passion for developing novel medical devices along with discussions about FDA regulation. The opportunity to help educate and guide the UCSF community on the latest developments from the FDA and other international regulators is the ideal way of ‘doing more,’ and it is my primary reason for being part of the Rosenman Institute under UCSF. My entire career has been about the delivery of new and novel technologies to improve patient quality of life, and I look forward to working with the UCSF community in honor of Dan.”
