Developing Leaders in Biomedical Technology Innovation
Our mission is to train students, fellows and faculty in the Biodesign Process: a systematic approach to needs finding and the invention and implementation of new biomedical technologies. Key components of the program include Biodesign Medical Device Innovation Fellowships; classes in medtech innovation; mentoring of students and faculty in the technology transfer process; career services for students interested in medtech careers; and community educational events.
Biodesign also works closely with the Stanford Office of Technology and Licensing and Spectrum, the Stanford Center for Clinical and Translational Education and Research to help accelerate the delivery of new technologies into patient care.
As part of the university-wide Bio-X community, Biodesign includes faculty and students from over 40 departments across the Schools of Business, Engineering, Humanities & Sciences, Law and Medicine.
