Michael Moffat, Cavendish co-founder and CEO explains, “The theme of our La Jolla, California Forum is a ‘celebration of philanthropy, impact investing and innovation that is changing the world.’ With the help of our expert advisors, we conduct a global search of research institutions and private-sector companies in order to identify organisations that meet the required standard of excellence. The quality and originality of EndoShape’s research and scientific insights in polymer development and embolization technology positions them to make a major contribution to the treatment of many clinical indications including liver cancer, trauma, neurovascular conditions and pelvic congestion syndrome.”
