Meet the company whose founder invented the defibrillator. During an emergency, a life depends on advanced, high-quality medical technology. Physiocontrol produces this technology. It specializes in developing, manufacturing, and selling emergency medical response equipment including defibrillators, chest compressors, and analysis tools for resuscitation data. Our meeting on September 30th at 5:30 p.m. will be held in the Bank of America Executive Education Center (EXED) 310.BLHC Logo

He is pursuing a revolutionary science that will turn a person’s B-Cells into, “drug factories.” Thank you to all of you who came to the meeting. Check out the link to Immusoft’s website below if you want to learn more about the company. There is also a lot of very interesting media coverage of their work.
