by | May 4, 2016 | Alliances, Policy

This was Mayor Pat Showalter’s first visit to the Fogarty Institute and thanks to her background as a professional engineer and years of public service, she showed a deep appreciation for the Institute’s drive to develop innovations that benefit patients, and the effort, coordination and knowledge it takes to design and get products to market.

The Mayor, Alex Andrade and Tiffany Chew from the Office of Economic Development toured the Fog Shop and met with several of our startups that are driving innovation in mother and infant healthcare, including Madorra, InPress Technologies, MedicalCue and nVision, as well as Terumo, one of our Japanese corporate partners.

The City of Mountain View is home to many major technology companies, including Google, LinkedIn, Microsoft and Siemens Medical, as well as a broad range of startups. We are thrilled to be part of this dynamic environment, and look forward to forging partnerships with companies that wish to learn more about creating an innovation-driven environment and those that are just starting to get involved in the medical technology field.
