The panel will be moderated by David Cassak, Managing Partner at Windhover Information, and will feature a number of prominent industry decision makers including Stuart Foster, Corporate VP, Technology & Discovery at Edwards Lifesciences, and a top executive from Stryker, among others to be announced.
