CTTC Seminar: FDA Guidance on Medical Software, Apps and Devices

Tuesday, Nov. 19, CTTC will host a special seminar, "When Does a Medical Software/APP Become a Medical Device: Practical Considerations and FDA Guidance”. Leading the seminar will be Seth Mailhot, J.D., attorney at Michael Best and Friedrich, LLP.
