This conference will be held in Warsaw, Indiana, the Orthopedics Capital of the World. What does it take to build a successful life sciences cluster? What does it take to keep it on top? What does the future hold for the global orthopedics industry? And how do Indiana's other life sciences clusters benefit from Indiana's orthopedics industry? This conference will explore and answer these questions, helping attendees to understand the business, regulatory and legal issues involved.
