MDEpiNet Collaborations


Collaborating with Manufacturers: In the past two years we have also established productive partnerships with both J&J and Medtronic Inc. The Chief Medical and Regulatory Officers of these companies (Aran Maree and Richard Kuntz, respectively) are regularly engaged in our projects and contribute to the IDEAL Collaboration and research studies. In fact, currently there is a preliminary agreement to establish a device fellowship program with J&J. Additionally, there is on-going discussion with ‘Titan Spine’ and ‘ABIOMED’ to establish collaborations.

Other collaborating partners interested in devices: The Center for Advanced Digestive Care at New York-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center is one of the nation's leading multidisciplinary centers for the diagnosis and treatment of digestive diseases. The Center’s mission is to provide optimal patient care for all aspects of digestive disease in one convenient and comprehensive environment. The Center is very interested in supporting and advancing the outcomes research.

The Minimally Invasive New Technologies Program (MINT) is an innovative collaboration between New York-Presbyterian Hospital and the Weill Cornell Medical College. Through the MINT program, clinicians and engineers develop technologies that advance minimally invasive surgery at New York-Presbyterian and beyond. The center requires support for outcomes research and understanding the regulatory and payer environment for devices in the USA and internationally.
