BiVACOR Infosession BiVACOR is a rapidly-growing venture-backed company based in Cerritos, CA. The company was founded in 2013 and is developing a total artificial heart. BiVACOR’s core technology is a major advance compared to earlier and current generation technologies. The company’s device utilizes a magnetic suspension system, and has the unique ability to respond to a patient’s changing needs by dynamically altering its impeller position within a single chamber to safely pump blood from both the left and right sides of the heart. The device can support both sides of a failing heart or can act as a total heart replacement. BiVACOR is currently conducting animal trials in partnership with the Texas Heart Institute in Houston and is preparing to submit an application to the FDA to begin human trials. The company is growing its team and is very interested in developing relationships and collaborating with the UCLA community.
BiVACOR is interesting in connecting with UCLA faculty, graduate students, and undergraduate students. They are offering summer internships as well! When: Thursday, May 24, 5 pm Where: EV 4101 RSVP: tinyurl.com/S18BMESBiVACOR
