Exceptional AmCham Breakfast on Thursday Oct 2nd:

Dear Members and Friends of AmCham,

We are pleased to invite you to our exceptional AmCham Breakfast on Thursday Oct 2nd:


Partnerships with American

Organizations and Institutions:

IRCAD's success story

with Professeur Jacques Marescaux,

President and Founder of IRCAD

CEO of the Image-Guided Minimally Invasive Surgical Institute (IHU Strasbourg)

Founder of the European Institute for Telesurgery (EITS)

Professor of Surgery


Come and listen to Professeur Marescaux tell us the story of IRCAD's stellar development over the past 20 years, an ambitious project started from scratch which led to the development of an internationally-acclaimed and uniquely-structured Institute combining fundamental research, training and state-of-the art medical imagery... all within the grounds of the Hôpitaux Universitaires de Strasbourg.

Professeur Marescaux, a true pioneer in his field, will share with us his experience working with American partners, whether companies, universities or institutions: what worked well? What was challenging? What advice would he give to other pioneers wanting to establish themselves on the US market? These are some of the questions he will cover for us.


“Your company is an excellent example of transatlantic cooperation and of technology, innovation and research, all essential elements in service to medical progress.”  Craig R. Stapleton – Ambassador of the United States in France, 2005 – on IRCAD
