Can I make my device standout for treating pulmonary emboli?

Over 900,000 individuals per year will develop complications related to venous thromboembolism.  Nearly 50% of individuals that develop a pulmonary embolus will die within 2 weeks of diagnosis. There are currently a multitude of devices offered for the treatment of venous blood clots and compete over an annual $14 billion market.  My team and I are developing strategies on how to differentiate our product for the treatment of pulmonary emboli.

On the third Thursday of every month , ICTS Precision Medicine hosts a session featuring WashU faculty working in translational genomics/precision medicine areas. Talks are typically oriented toward biotechnology, diagnostics, informatics, start-ups and precision interventions based on medical genomics innovations.
