BME-CBID Design Day Competition 2016 winning teams

May 4, 2016

Johns Hopkins Biomedical Engineering has emerged as a trailblazer in the translation of scientific and technical advances into clinical applications for health care improvement. Our Center for Bioengineering Innovation and Design (CBID) is at the heart of the effort to train and educate the next generation of global leaders in biomedical innovation and technology.

CBID utilizes team-based biomedical design projects to instill the spirit of teamwork, inventiveness, and innovation. Under the guidance of Johns Hopkins’ nationally respected physicians and faculty, students learn precisely what goes into the development and commercialization of new medical tools, from the initial research stages through production and marketing.

Health care innovations are showcased and judged each year at Design Day. This open forum allows CBID student design teams (and other finalists) to share with event attendees the need for their device, explain how it will improve healthcare, and demonstrate the device operation. This year Design Day was expanded to all Johns Hopkins student medtech inventors as a campus-wide Design Competition.

Johns Hopkins Biomedical Engineering congratulates the 2016 Design Day winners along with all participants and applauds their remarkable efforts.
