Enterprise Ireland Technology Gateways announce new webinar series

Enterprise Ireland Technology Gateways are delighted to announce a new webinar series. ‘Technology Insights’ brings together a range of relevant and exciting industry topics highlighting current, new and emerging technologies in sectors such as MedTech, Software, Biotechnology, Food and Manufacturing. The series aims to provide Irish industry with a platform for interesting and engaging discussion on a wide range of current and future technologies, presented by industry experts within the Technology Gateway Network.

Pushing the boundaries of in-vitro testing
The series commences on 12th November 2020 and explores the current capabilities in Medical Imaging, Anatomical Modelling and Physiological Replication. Titled ‘Pushing the boundaries of in-vitro testing’, Sharon White, Technology Gateway Manager at MET, GMIT will discuss how existing and new technologies can be used individually or together to produce an accurate, clinically-relevant, simulated use environment.

Sharon has significant and diverse experience in the medical device industry and brings extensive knowledge of the medical device development process to the centre. Her 13 years of industry experience includes Regulatory Affairs and Research and Development, and she has seen several devices to launch. She has an in-depth understanding of design controls and risk management and has been involved in all aspects of the development process from concept development right through to design verification and validation and product launch.

MET Technology Gateway
Based at GMIT’s Galway campus, the Medical and Engineering Technologies Gateway (MET) offers a range of applied technologies relevant to companies in the product engineering and design application phase. These technologies include Medical imaging technologies that allow for companies’ prototypes to be tested under simulated conditions and anatomical modelling and physiological replication technologies, which includes the translation of medical data (MRI’s, ultrasounds, etc.) into engineering data and then into clinically endorsed anatomical models with accompanying simulation system. The Gateway personnel offers a unique conduit between medical product engineering and an in-depth knowledge of internal anatomy.

Who should attend
This webinar is ideal for companies, who may wish to find out more about in-vitro testing, and what can be achieved through bench-top device evaluation and testing.
