June 22, 2016: "Medical Devices Reimagined"

Every day, engineers integrate new technology into medical devices. But with the pace of advances in technology and discovery, the potential for devices now far outstrips the state of the art. It is essential for us to reimagine the possibilities. Where better to reimagine devices than the Rosenman Symposium, held at UCSF Mission Bay? Together, we can speed the development of exciting technologies to improve the lives of patients.
