  • Minnesota's leadership in developing complex medical devices is highlighted in this week’s Alley Insight. Data show Minnesota’s dominance in developing cardiology, urology, neurology, drug delivery, and gastroenterology devices. This is one reason Minnesota’s St. Cloud State University has the only clinical research MS degree program in the US that focuses on medical devices.
  • Each year the College of Science and Engineering holds a networking and job fair for students in its MedTech Master Degree Programs. Almost twenty medtech industry companies, including the seven largest medical device companies in Minnesota, participated in this year's event. This represents more than 2/3 of the medical device employment in the state of Minnesota!  See the write up on the front page of the business section of The Star Tribune.
