Event to Explore the Fast-Evolving World of Medical Devices
Event to Explore the Fast-Evolving World of Medical Devices The University of Texas at Dallas will host the first Texas Medical Device Symposium on Friday, Nov. 2.

The symposium provides an opportunity for the public to hear the latest findings in the field from leading academic researchers, clinicians and representatives of companies making the devices. The symposium also includes an opportunity for researchers to learn more about the federal process for getting a medical device approved for use.
