Boston Scientific opens research-development centre in India

Gurgaon, July 15 (IANS) Global medical devices company Boston Scientific on Friday opened a new research and development, training and commercial centre here to develop and sell technologies fit for the Indian and Asian markets and train physicians in using them effectively.

The 100,000 square-feet centre will focus on creating market-appropriate products based on unmet clinical needs and will also serve as a global product engineering center.

“The need for innovation in medical technology is a high priority in many countries worldwide and the government will support all efforts in research and innovation so that affordable and quality care is accessible to more and more patients in India,” Faggan Singh Kulaste, Minister of State for Health and Family Welfare, told reporters here.

The state-of-the-art Institute for Advancing Science (IAS), a physician-training facility equipped with world-class simulators for hands-on training on innovative technologies, is the newest addition to the growing global network of Boston Scientific IAS facilities.

“The Indian ecosystem has all the right ingredients for innovation, namely a best-in-class technical talent pool in the areas of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math), world-renowned physicians who bring an understanding of clinical unmet needs, and top-notch academic institutions,” added Prabal Chakraborty, Vice President and Managing Director of Boston Scientific India.

By establishing a consolidated presence in the region, Boston Scientific will extend its reach in India, offering solutions to physicians and patients combating conditions in areas such as cardiovascular disease, cardiac arrhythmias, gastrointestinal and urologic disorders, and chronic pain.

Kulaste also flagged off the Boston Scientific Navigation Express, an innovation mobile van that will travel through 11 states, 53 cities and 206 hospitals in six months to educate physicians, hospital administrators, and medical technicians on the new range of medical devices in order to improve patient outcomes.
