R&Q's Blog

Medical device industry news and trends - and the resources to understand and act on them.


Taking it up a notch at DeviceTalks Minnesota


DeviceTalks Minnesota is right around the corner and we couldn't possibly be more excited - really. June 4-5 is only a little over three weeks away! We've witnessed the growth of this event first-hand over the past few years and this year we're confident will be the best yet, especially considering the new partnership with the Medical Alley Association (MAA). R&Q sees this as the premier medtech event in Minnesota in 2018, which is why we've decided to be a Platinum Sponsor this year. Beyond that and most importantly, we're helping to craft the educational content of the Regulatory 2.0 track, presented by MAA. 

R&Q Q&A: Minnesota Spotlight

Welcome to the third post in our R&Q Q&A series. Every few months we ask R&Q employees from a different region questions about how they make their impact at R&Q... and the impact R&Q has had on them. From improving people's lives to R&Q's corporate culture, we hope their answers shed light on how R&Q influences the medical device industry and why our employees claim time and time again that working at R&Q is a highly rewarding experience.
