If you are in the neighbourhood be sure to connect with Oded VanHam, MDPP's Operations Manager Victoria. It is the perfect opportunity to have a conversation about the potential of your idea or opportunity to translate your research. Ask how MDPP can provide the additional support you may need to connect with clinicians, engineers, designers and industry. Even if it’s a quick chat, do drop in!
