Neuromodulation Innovation: From Idea to Market

4:00-5:30 PM Saturday, Jan. 14

This session will discuss neuromodulation innovation and how to start with an idea and then bring it to market. Specifically around legal considerations, business considerations, patents, and raising capital. We will also discuss how to go about developing new and novel waveforms and how to test those on patients keeping in mind IRB and FDA considerations. The faculty will go over how physicians and basic scientists actually go about innovating and developing new things.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this educational activity, participants should be able to:

  • Describe how to take a new neuromodulation idea and bring it to market.
  • Explain how to patent your idea.
  • Discuss how best to raise money (apply for grants or seek investors).
  • Review how to run trials while considering FDA and IRB legal implications.
