WEDNESDAY May 19, 2010
SCV Engineering in Medicine and Biology Chapter
Speaker: Dr. Fred St. Goar, El Camino Hospital
Time: Optional dinner at Nexus Cafeteria in the Clark Center, 6:15 pm (no host, no reservations); Presentation at 7:30 PM
Cost: none
Place: Room M-114, Stanford University Medical School, Stanford
RSVP: not required

Fred St.Goar is an interventional cardiologist at El Camino Hospital. He did his internal medicine and cardiology training at Stanford in the eighties during the hayday of cardiology medical device development where he took his lead from the plethora of successful enterpreneurs who were actively involved with the Stanford program including Tom Fogarty, John Simpson, Paul Yock and Rich Popp to name a few. Since his training he has been actively involved in the early development of a number of projects that went on to become successful companies including Heartport, Cardiovascular Imaging Systems and Cryovascular Systems. In 1999 he cofounded with the Foundry, a then fledging medical device incubator. Evalve, a company that prior to recently being acquired by Abbott was recognized as one of the leaders in area of percutaneous mitral valve intervention. His talk will take you through the Evalve story from the perspective of a physician innovator.
