Critical elements of successful proposals will be a well-developed idea or vision for the end product and a collaboration between clinicians, scientists, and bioengineers; that collaboration will make possible the identification of a significant clinical problem, an innovative idea for a device or diagnostic to address the problem, bioengineering approaches for device or diagnostic development, voice of consumer studies, and early clinical trials.
