Hebrew University's Bio-Design Entrepreneurship Program

Medical Innovation Projects Presentations

Thursday, June 20th from 18:00 to 20:00

at the Belgium House, Edmund J. Safra Campus (Givat Ram), Hebrew University

The Center for Bio-engineering, Hadassah Medical Center, and the School of Business Administration invites you to the project presentation of the first Israeli program in bio-medical innovation & entrepreneurship called Bio-Design.

The Bio-Design: Medical Innovation program takes outstanding medical fellows, bio-engineering and business graduate students and tutors them in the science and practice of bringing medical innovations to the market. Mentored by industry and academic experts, the students create prototypes, businesses plans, and submit patent applications.

The BioDesign: Medical Innovation program has been immensely successful in the United States, increasing Stanford University biomed startup success rates by 4 to 5 folds over the last decade. We envision that a similar revolution will take place in Jerusalem.

This year we present four outstanding projects, ranging from automated intubation, digital denture recordings, to hand-held IV insertion devices.

This year 20 fellows will present four cutting edge projects:

  • GuideIN Tube: A semi-automatic real-time guided intubation device that navigates towards the trachea even in the absence of visual acuity. Targeting a $3 billion market.
  • DCDI: An intraoral impression system that rapidly creates 3D models tissue mechanics for complete dentures. Targeting a $14 billion market.
  • MetaboShield: A gastric sleeve with a unique mechanical design that follows normal physiological architecture preventing sleeve migration or damage to the intestinal wall. TArgeting a $4.5 billion market.
  • SAGIV: A hand held, semi-automatic handheld device for rapid and safe IV insertion. Targeting a $900 million market.

The event will take place Thursday, June 20th from 18:00 to 20:00 at the Belgium House, Edmund J. Safra Campus.

    I found the projects very interesting. They were impressive from both the innovation and practical perspective. I also find the 4 faculties combination very impressive and promising. As a person who is interested in bridging academia and BioTech I see this enterprise as a very big step in that direction. Well done to both the organizers and participants.

    I want to thank all the participants and organizers for the innovative evening. The presentations were very interesting. All the 4 groups did a great job! Good luck to the groups in their future start-up developments!
    I hope there would be more such multidisciplinary entrepreneurship projects in HUJI.

    My appreciation to sponsors, organizers & muli-disciplinary participants. Co-operative efforts leading to fruitful partnerships between academia & industry became popular with Stanford University’s efforts in this direction in the 1950’s. BioDesign program is a significant development in this process. HUJI has such mechanisms, but these are limited to graduate students & faculty. This program brings the concept to the undergraduate level as part of its curriculum. The experience accumulated by all parties is priceless.
    I would like to suggest that the teams summarize in writing the process they underwent, from the moment of recognizing the need to the presentation. They could record the alternatives they faced, the decision making processes they followed, and the difficulties they encountered. Such collected summaries could eventually become a robust body of knowledge for the benefit of future entrepreneurs.

    This was a historic event for the Hebrew University and for Jerusalem. In my opinion, this was a far more important event than the President's conference. In twenty year's year people will look back to see that this was a major step for the Hebrew University.

    The Biodesign is a novel platform for in-house entrepreneurship at the Hebrew University where graduate students form biomed companies using the knowledge intense and R&D infrastructure of the Hebrew University and are taught and mentor by four different faculties in how to establish and run a company. This multidisciplinary approach is an incredible hands on training for students as well as could be a new source for knowledge transfer to the health market and company creation for the Hebrew University. Kol Ha Kavod to Dr Yaakov Nahmias, Prof Haim Lotan and Prof Dan Galai.

    The 4 presentations were all great! I hadn't heard about this HU initiative until this evening and was impressed by the fact that HU people had developed this exciting and promising program. Good luck to the developers of the fascinating 4 projects we were exposed to today.

    Sorry I can't make it, but I'll be sending my son, Joshua, as my rep. He'll be gathering information for my investment group to review. Good luck!
