Research Interest
Dr. Marvin "Marv" J. Slepian has significant experience in converting concept to reality. Over his career he has developed and brought to the clinic a number of innovative technologies, using his unique and creative approach to biomedical problem solving. He has designed a number of stents, or scaffolds, for arteries, with unique properties that make them more responsive to the clinical situation – essentially "smart stents." Slepian is quick to point out that "all this occurred by virtue of vision in combination with collaboration and team building."
