Amendia, Inc., a leading provider of innovative medical devices and regenerative implants for spinal surgery, is pleased to announce that its Chairman of the Board of Directors, Scott Bruder, MD, PhD, will be a featured speaker at the prestigious Harvard Stem Cell Institute and Harvard Business School summit: The Business of Regenerative Medicine | How to Build a Company conference.
Dr. Bruder is an adjunct Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Case Western Reserve University, and former Industry Member of the FDA Advisory Committee on Cellular, Tissue and Gene Therapies. He is also an advisor to corporations and investors, particularly in the areas of bench-to-bedside product development, innovation and portfolio management, and clinical and regulatory affairs strategy.
Dr. Bruder will join a panel of industry leaders discussing the business of regenerative medicine, including views from the biopharmaceutical, device, manufacturing, tissue bank, regulatory and investment sectors.
The focus of Dr. Bruder’s first presentation will be on trends in cell therapies and regenerative biomaterials. He will outline aspects of the decision-making process around bringing biologic products such as recombinant proteins and cellular allografts in spine, orthopaedics and sports medicine, as well as amniotic tissue derived products to market, for companies like Amendia and others.
On Day Two of the summit, Dr. Bruder will be part of an expert review panel, providing guidance and feedback to a number of development stage firms with tissue repair products, instruments and tools designed for the regenerative medicine industry.
The conference is the 9th program in the Business of Regenerative Medicine series hosted by Harvard Stem Cell Institute and the Harvard School of Business. It is organized by Harvard Stem Cell Institute, Case Western Reserve University, Centre for Commercialization of Regenerative Medicine (Toronto), and the Parker H.
