Boston research hospital moves agressively to market device inventions

Tufts Medical Center in Boston is making an aggressive move to market new medical devices, IT programs and drug treatments its researchers have developed to potential investors. The teaching and research hospital plans to hold what it has dubbed "Innovation Day" on Sept. 12 in order to present 10 innovations that sprung from the minds of its researchers, the Boston Business Journal reports. Among the technology items the hospital is hoping to monetize: an injectable medical device envisioned to prevent premature births. Story
