The New Technology Showcase, sponsored by Boston Scientific for the fourth consecutive year, provides an opportunity for companies around the world to send in applications to exhibit technologies representing medical devices, pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, and health care delivery. Steve Mertens, sr. vice president of research and development with the cardiovascular division at Boston Scientific, and current chair of the LifeScience Alley board of directors, asserts ???Identifying and highlighting breakthrough technology is important to driving the life science industry. The New Technology showcase does just that by providing emerging and established companies an opportunity to introduce their most innovative products and therapies to other members of the life science community and key decision makers???.
