We are preparing for the 2015-2016 Engineering Innovations in Medicine program and would like to invite you to be a clinical partner. As you know, this is a year-long program to pair physicians with engineers with the goal to tackle unmet clinical needs. In the past two years the projects have resulted in functional medical innovation prototypes, many of which have continued on to gain additional funding for further development and testing.
If you have an unmet clinical need that you would like us to solve, or if you are interested in submitting an idea for or mentoring a medical innovation project, please let us know! Attached is a form with additional information about our program, as well as an application for potential projects.
Please feel free to forward this on to anyone who you think may be interested. The due date is listed as August 20th, but we are happy to extend this until Monday August 24th. If you need more time, please let us know.
We look forward to collaborating with you.
