History[edit]

Abiomed was founded in Danvers by David M. Lederman[3] in 1981 as Applied Medical Corporation, and began working on the development of an artificial heart.[4] Funded by federal research grants,[5] Lederman partnered with The Texas Heart Institute to develop the AbioCor, implanting the first artificial heart into a Kentucky man in July 2001.[6] Fourteen of the AbioCor devices were implanted, during clinical trials from 2001 to 2004, with the longest-living recipient surviving 512 days.[7] The AbioCor won FDA approval in 2006 for patients who are near death and do not qualify for a heart transplant.[8]

In 2004, Michael R. Minogue became president and CEO of Abiomed.[9] In 2005, Abiomed purchased ventricular assist device company Impella CardioSystems AG of Aachen, Germany,[10] maker of the Impella heart pump, developed by Thorsten Siess,[11] who is now the Chief Technology Officer at Abiomed.[12]

Since 2005, Impella heart devices have received a series of FDA approvals.[13]

In 2007, the Impella 2.5 heart pump was among 35 healthcare products to receive a 2007 Medical Design Excellence Award.[14]

Minogue helped found the Medical Technology Veterans Program (MVP), a career training and mentorship initiative designed to help veterans entering the civilian workforce transition into jobs in the medical device and life sciences industries.[15] He currently serves as chairman of the program.
