The Conference is truly unique in that it provides a forum for individual researchers to present not only to fellow investigators, but also to members of industry and to government representatives who will be involved in regulatory affairs as the projects are developed into the production of clinical devices.
The ASAIO Annual Conference provides continuing education for Accreditation for Physicians, Nurses & Perfusionists.
ASAIO will host an Exhibit Program in conjunction with the ASAIO 59th Annual Conference.
ASAIO (formerly known as the American Society for Artificial Internal Organs) is a world class society that has been in existence for over 55 years. It strives to “save lives one medical device at a time”. ASAIO’s mission is to provide a forum that globally and collaboratively promotes the development of innovative medical device technology at the crossroads of science, engineering, and medicine. This is synergistically accomplished by our interdisciplinary and talented membership comprised of clinicians, scientists, engineers, industry, academia, the financial community, as well as representatives from the Food & Drug Administration, National Science Foundation and the National Institutes of Health. Our interdisciplinary think-tank of developers push the envelope by continually adapting, evolving, and advancing the medical device, tissue engineering, and regenerative medicine fields to provide solutions that culminate in the development of novel life-saving technologies. ASAIO is deeply rooted in decades of history, success, and experience. We seek to challenge conventional wisdom, to carefully address technological limitations, and to formulate new solutions with life-changing potential.
