BioDesign is at the center of what we do today in terms of product development within the medical field. Using a systems approach for product development, individuals work together in interdisciplinary teams to observe and identify unmet needs and collaboratively create products to solve them. At the root of successful biomedical innovation are facets of an ecosystem that can be learned. Topics covered will include:

  • A 10-year review of the evolution of biodesign and how it fosters innovation
