Clinical Applications Specialist

 

Centerline Biomedical, Inc., a medical device start-up with high growth potential, seeks to hire a full-time Clinical Applications Specialist to be located at its offices in Cleveland, Ohio. This individual would work among a diverse team of experts, itself part of a highly-skilled multidisciplinary team dedicated to achieving the successful commercial launch of a medical device and development of next-generation technologies.

Centerline is developing healthcare solutions to bring the next generation of imaging, navigation, predictive analytics, training, and robotics to minimally invasive surgery. Endovascular surgical procedures presently rely on X-ray fluoroscopy, which exposes patients and caregivers to harmful radiation while providing limited 2-D imaging. Our first product, IOPS™ (the Intra-Operative Positioning System), expected to be launched in 2019, delivers accurate 3-D navigation without the use of ionizing radiation or contrast medium thus allowing surgeons to navigate within the arteries much like using a GPS, minimizing exposure to cancer-causing radiation and toxic contrast dye. Our IOPS™ technology aims at improving patient outcomes, reducing radiation exposure, simplifying complex procedures, increasing throughput and lowering healthcare costs driving better margins as well as improving utilization and profitability of surgical rooms and medical personnel. In the future, Centerline’s platform technology will address multiple applications such as endovascular aortic repair, peripheral artery disease, coronary intervention and stenting, carotid aneurysm, cerebral aneurysm, and electrophysiology, etc.

Centerline, a Cleveland Clinic spin-off housed in the Global Cardiovascular Innovation Center (GCIC) on Cleveland Clinic’s main campus in Cleveland, Ohio, maintains a close relationship with Cleveland Clinic and has access to the unique resources and environment of the incubator to carry out research and product development with Cleveland Clinic researchers and clinicians.
