Another panelist is Robert Greenberg, M.D., Ph.D., CEO of Second Sight LLC in Valencia, CA, which is developing a retinal implant to treat blindness. On the venture capital panel, Roger Quy, Ph.D., a partner with Technology Partners of Palo Alto, CA, Heath Lukatch, Ph.D., a partner with US Bancorp. Piper Jaffrey in Menlo Park, CA, and Daniel O'Connell with Neuro Ventures Capital in Charlottsville, VA will participate.

Keynote speaker at this year's event will be Dr. Warren Grill, one of the nation's leading experts in neural stimulation, neural prostheses, and neural control. Dr. Grill is the Elmer L. Lindseth Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Case Western Reserve University and a principal investigator at the Cleveland FES Center.

Other speakers at the Forum include Ann Bunnenberg, Ph.D, president of Electrical Geodesics, Inc. in Portland, OR, and Arthur Prochazka, Ph.D., founder of Neurokinetics, Inc., in Edmonton, AB.

Session topics include partnering opportunities with bio/pharma firms, distribution and marketing issues, the reimbursement outlook for stimulation devices, and developing supportive clinician communities.

James Cavuoto, editor and publisher of Neurotech Business Report, will serve as moderator for the roundtable discussions.
