2018 Bioelectronic Medicine Forum
A New Investment and Management Conference for
Entrepreneurs and Executives
March 22, 2018
Millennium Broadway, New York, NY
This inaugural meeting represents the first management and investment conference for the new and emerging bioelectronic medicine industry. Attendees will have an exclusive opportunity to interact with some of the key leaders driving this field forward. The schedule of presentations and panel discussions features a host of experts with a wealth of information on the neuroscience industry and the investment community.
Featured speakers include Gene Civillico, Ph.D., the NIH Program Manager for the SPARC program, which has funded much of the early research in this field. Also presenting is Eric van Gieson, Ph.D., Program Manager at DARPA's Biological Technologies Office, which oversees the ElectRx program.
Sessions will cover a range of technologies and indications for bioelectronic medicine, including applications in cardiovascular medicine, inflammation, gastrointestinal disorders, and many other clinical specialties. Attendees will hear from some of the leading researchers and entrepreneurs developing clinically and commercially promising products such as implanted vagus nerve stimulation systems to treat hypertension, and surface stimulation devices to treat a range of disorders.
Several early-stage and emerging bioelectronic medicine firms will be presenting at the conference. These include NeuSpera Medical, which is developing a unique mid-field power technology that uses the body as a waveguide to power bioelectronic devices. Also presenting is Axion Biosystems, a manufacturer of multi-well microelectronic electrode arrays, and Neuroelectrics, a Spanish firm that manufactures noninvasive stimulation and recording devices.
The conference is co-sponsored by the Feinstein Institute for Medical Research. Imran Eba of Action Potential Venture Capital, GSK’s venture arm in bioelectronic medicine, will serve as a moderator. The event takes place in the same venue and one day prior to the Future Leaders Conference, which is produced and organized by BioCentury, a global leader in business intelligence for the biopharma industry. BioCentury is pleased to serve as a marketing partner of the Bioelectronic Medicine Forum.
