IE Business School is glad to invite you and the members of your network to join the sixth in a series of videoconferences titled Biotechnology Management Today, on Thursday, May 20th at 15:00 (Madrid local time) or 21:00 (Singapore local time).

Carolina Aguilar – Neuromodulation’s Market Development Manager for Europe and Central Asia (ECA). Medtronic European Headquarters, Switzerland

This conference will give an overview about how medical technology innovation will fundamentally transform health care delivery, providing new solutions that might have been considered science fiction just some years ago but that are quickly becoming the standard of care. It will focus on the barriers and drivers of the Medical Device industry compared to the Pharmaceutical industry explaining why the pace of the medical invention is accelerating leading to an extremely attractive market space.

Carolina Aguilar will also showcase one of these examples of medical innovation, covering the journey from pipeline to market of Medtronic Deep Brain Stimulation, a technology for which Medtronic has been recognized as one of the world’s most innovative companies by MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) in March 2010.

Since July 2008, Carolina Aguilar has been the Market Development Manager for Europe and Central Asia for Medtronic – the leader in medical technology providing lifelong solutions for people with chronic diseases. Her role covers the strategic analysis of the market conditions, prioritization of needs, development of strategic solutions and execution of tailored-made plans for a sustainable growth in the different countries of the European Union and Central Asia. Carolina holds a Pharmacy degree from Universidad Complutense de Madrid, a Master’s in Neurotoxicology from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University in USA and an Executive MBA from the IE Business School in Madrid. After her early years of undertaking scientific research in the area of Neurosciences in USA, she successfully led the introduction of the Greek cosmetic company, APIVITA Natural Products, into the Spanish Market in her function as Country Manager. After this challenging business experience, she joined Medtronic Spain in June 2006, working as a Marketing Manager in the Neuromodulation department and moved on to Medtronic’s European headquarters in Switzerland in 2008 where she continues working today.
