Generate ideas for world-changing biomedical innovations and technologies!

June 27-30, 2011

What is it?
IdeaLab is a highly experiential workshop that uses dynamic case studies, creative experiences and intensive exercises to help students expand their understanding of and competence in BME design. Over four days, you'll be challenged to develop creative solutions to BME problems and learn how to apply these solutions (ideas) through a market-oriented lens.

By the end of the workshop you'll have developed the confidence and skills to generate ideas for new biomedical innovations, as well as to understand and be able to pursue market validation, product design, business development and regulator approval activities.

Who should attend?
Rising seniors or other students in biomedical engineering programs interested in idea generation, and product development and design.
