If you have an idea for a technical innovation to improve health, consider attending this workshop on Sept. 15, noon-1 p.m. You’ll walk away understanding the Biomedical Innovation Program awards for medical device and diagnostic technology projects — and what makes a strong candidate.
Jonathan Jubera, BIP project manager, and Richard Rylander, executive in residence, will introduce the Biomedical Innovation Program and review the application process, providing step-by-step instructions for completing the letter of intent.
The Biomedical Innovation Program at OHSU provides mentorship and funding to innovators with promising translational projects. The objective is to improve human health by moving these technologies into clinics through commercialization.
The BIP Awards program, now in its ninth year, is a collaboration of the OHSU Oregon Clinical and Translational Research Institute, OHSU Technology Transfer and OHSU Collaborations and Entrepreneurship. Award funding is provided by OCTRI and the OHSU Foundation via the University Venture Development Fund.
