I’m Bill Voorhees. I have been employed by MED Institute for over 25 years, although I have been associated with the company from its inception, serving on its advisory board from 1983 until being hired on in 1990. Prior to coming to MED, I spent 14 years at the Biomedical Engineering Center at Purdue (4 years as a doctoral student and 10 years as Research Faculty).
It was a natural progression to come to MED. At the Biomed Center, we did a lot of practical, applied physiology research. At MED we take the next step and help bring the fruits of such research to the patient. Our role in the process comprises all aspects of product validation testing including non‑clinical in vitro and in vivo testing as well as clinical trials. I have to admit I may be most pleased with being involved in helping conduct the first clinical trial, analyzing the resulting data, and preparing the regulatory submissions that led to FDA’s approval of the first coronary stent available in the U.S., The Gianturco-Roubin Flex‑Stent Coronary Stent. Those were exciting times, and there are more to come as we offer our expertise in all aspects of new product approval to a new set of clients learning to navigate the medical product approval process.
