AHCJ member Tinker Ready, on Boston Health News, writes that research institutions and companies presented their inventions to investors at Harvard Medical School on Monday.

An illuminated catheter, an artificial retina, a system to shrink tonsils and a device to deliver drugs to the brain were among the products at the “Early-Stage Life Sciences Technology Conference.”

Ready points out that the “the debate over the growing overlap between academia and industry remains unresolved,” with some seeing the effort as a threat to academic integrity.
