Yale BioHaven Entrepreneurship Seminar Series Launched: Commercializing Medical Devices

Manohar Panjabi, M.D.

Yale Office of Cooperative Research and Connecticut United for Research Excellence (CURE) launch the Yale BioHaven Entrepreneurship Seminars series on Tuesday, December 13 from 4 to 5 p.m. in the Anlyan Center auditorium of Yale Medical School, 300 Cedar Street.

This seminar will feature Applied Spine Technologies (AST), a local surgical implant company that is developing the Panjabi Spine System, a stabilization device that supports the spine while preserving motion and flexibility. Speakers will be Tom Wood, CEO, Applied Spine Technologies and Manohar Panjabi, M.D., Professor of Orthopaedics & Mechanical Engineering, Yale University.

AST, located in the technology incubator at 300 George Street in New Haven, was founded in February 2004 by Panjabi, who is one of the world’s leading authorities on spine biomechanics. They will tell their start-up team’s story, and how the right technology found the right people at the right time. Their goal is to motivate new ‘academic founders’ to see that their dreams and ideas can be realized.

The seminar will be followed by refreshments and networking. Registration is free, but required, by contacting Lucy Sargent at 203-436-8096.

For further information on the seminar, please contact Loraine Lombard.

HistoRx will be the focus of the next seminar in the series, and will present their case study on February 8, 2006.
