JBNF-BioMed members are invited to:
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.
