‘Explore Medtech: Combating COVID-19’ Panel Discussion Review: View our own Marc Saab along with an esteemed Panel hosted by MedTech Talent Accelerator

Ryerson University’s MedTech Talent Accelerator, in association with McGill University’s Biological & Biomedical Engineering (BBME) Student Society, recently hosted its virtual 2-day Biomedical Engineering symposium on May 5-6, 2021. Its main goal was to provide students with an opportunity to showcase their work to peers, faculty, and invited guests.

As part of the Symposium a virtual panel discussion entitled ‘Explore Medtech: Combating COVID-19’ was held on May 6th, 2021. The participants are all leaders in the field and involved in the efforts against COVID-19. Our own Marc Saab, Founder of BML Technology and of the Montreal based ‘COVID-19 Emergency Digital Health Task Force‘ took part in this panel. View the session below.
