A Message from Paul Yock
Thanks to our community of supporters, Stanford Biodesign has launched a new generation of health technology innovators while sharing our needs-based innovation process around the globe. These amazing Stanford Biodesigners have invented more than 100 medical devices, started dozens of companies, raised hundreds of millions of dollars, taught hundreds of others our unique biodesign innovation process, and helped many hundreds of thousands of patients.
Stanford Biodesign has achieved these results with the support of our industry, foundation, and individual donors. We are completely reliant on donations from these sources to run our yearly programs. But this type of funding can be unpredictable. We need long-term support we can depend on to secure the future of Stanford Biodesign. With your philanthropic partnership, we’ll build an endowment that will allow us to expand our horizons beyond each new class of fellows, students, and faculty trainees.
Our new designation as the Byers Center for Biodesign is the first step on our journey to a more sustainable future. The next step depends on you. Please help us continue teaching and spreading the biodesign innovation process for generations to come by getting involved today. Together we can educate aspiring innovators and empower them to deliver solutions to the world’s biggest health challenges.
Ensuring a future with the greatest possibilities in health technology innovation begins with securing the future of Stanford Biodesign. Join us.

“I’m one of the many volunteers who have worked with Stanford Biodesign. For nearly 15 years, I’ve mentored, coached, and supported fellows and the program. I’ve had the pleasure and honor to get to know Paul Yock and the talented leadership team very well.
I’m thrilled that Stanford Biodesign has earned the designation of a formal ‘Center’ at Stanford. This program is uniquely positioned to improve human health around the world. Their fellows and medical innovations change health care and have already directly benefited hundreds of thousands of patients. And they’re inspiring and empowering others by sharing best practices globally.
