Advancing healthcare through innovative technology

Medical devices can be used to diagnose or prevent disease, they can improve a patient’s quality of life and they often save lives. Devices such as pacemakers have been around since the late 1950s, but advancements in med-tech have come a long way since then. As research expands and technology advances, a multitude of medical devices are being developed and prepared for market. At the University of Waterloo, students and researchers are working on technologies that can improve outcomes for patients and propel the medical industry forward.

The Centre For Bioengineering and Biotechnology (CBB) is offering a regulatory insights workshop on Friday, November 15, 2019 that will help developers and researchers navigate the certification process. Health Canada regulators will be onsite to provide details about the process and answer questions. The workshop is free and open to everyone in the community, including industry members, faculty, graduate and undergraduate students.
