Life Science Partner recruits Senior Leader from the Cardiovascular Medical Device Industry.
Life Science Partner announces the recruitment of Mark Low, a senior cardiovascular medical device executive, to the newly created Global Cardiovascular Innovation Center (GCIC) based in Cleveland, Ohio. Headquartered on the campus of The Cleveland Clinic, GCIC was launched with a $60 million grant for the State of Ohio through its Wright Center of Innovation program to develop and commercialize new cardiovascular products. Working with the GCIC’s Board of Directors and Commercialization Advisory Board, Low will build a team to utilize the considerable clinical, research and commercialization capabilities of the GCIC member organizations in northeast Ohio. GCIC will be focused on developing technologies in partnership with established cardiovascular-focused companies and in newly-formed start-up companies.
Low has spent most of his career developing new cardiovascular technologies in both small, venture-backed companies and large medical device companies. He has most recently provided market analysis, strategy and business development services for cardiovascular applications and technologies as an independent consultant. Previously, Low was Vice President of Business and Market Development for Sonus Pharmaceuticals, Inc., a drug delivery and specialty pharmaceutical company in Bothell, Washington. Earlier he led the market development of intra-vascular ultrasound (IVUS) at Hewlett Packard.
“Low is a well-networked and experienced marketing and commercialization executive in the field of cardiovascular technologies,” noted Tom Callaway, MD, founder and president of Life Science Partner. “Working with GCIC and its affiliate institutions, Low will connect technology leaders at Cleveland Clinic and Case Western with corporate leaders and venture funding sources.”
Low earned a Bachelor of Arts in Natural Science from Johns Hopkins University, a Master of Science in Physiology from the Medical College of Wisconsin, and a Master of Science in Technical Communication from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.
