Industry Partners


TheraNova logo

TheraNova is a San Francisco-based medical device developer with comprehensive product development capabilities. Our partnership agreement establishes mechanisms for collaboration and access to expertise at both sites, enabling supported technologies to benefit from UCSF's intellectual and clinical environment and TheraNova's comprehensive product development and manufacturing facilities capabilities. TheraNova projects and spin-outs benefit from UCSF's expertise and collaborators for clinical trials and academic grants. 

Zeus Industrial Products, Inc.

428_mainZeus was among the first polymer extrusion companies to work in the arena of minimally invasive techniques for revolutionary procedures involving catheterization. From our earliest PTFE heat shrink extrusions to our latest LCP monofilament for MRI-compatible catheters, Zeus's continuous innovation in partnership with medical professionals and manufacturers has kept us and our partners at the forefront of medical device innovation. 

As a strategic partner of Surgical Innovaitons, Zeus provides UCSF device innovators with material selection, design, and custom prototyping assistance.



ANSYS logo


Personalized medicine is starting to replace the current one-size-fits-all approach. In silico testing, i.e. using computer-based models of drugs and medical devices interacting with the body, is becoming pervasive: clinical testing can’t address every possible situation, so medical device designers rely on engineering simulation to systematically identify and resolve worst-case scenarios.

ANSYS, the global leader in engineering simulation, provides engineering simulation software to help customers solve the most complex design challenges and engineer successful, innovative products faster and at lower cost. Through ANSYS’s academic partnership program, Surgical Innovations engineers receive software and training to bring the advantages of engineering simulation into the device design process.
