Health Technology Showcase


Each year, we're impressed by what our students learn and accomplish in Stanford Biodesign’s project-based courses. Their unmet needs are compelling and their nascent solutions are exciting. As a result, many of the teams aren’t ready to stop working on their projects when their classes come to a close.

Some of these motivated teams compete for and are awarded Biodesign NEXT extension funding to continue working on their ideas. With mentorship and support from Stanford Biodesign, the students de-risk their early-stage technologies and business plans, with the hope of ultimately making a difference for patients.

We celebrate their progress at our annual Health Technology Showcase – a gathering where teams share their inventions with other students, faculty, and staff across Stanford. This year, the event featured keynote remarks by Mika Eddy, former Biodesign student and co-founder of Malama Health, as well as project presentations and prizes for the teams. Serosense was recognized for the most compelling need, and the Brainiacs won for most copelling solution!

On behalf of the Stanford Biodesign team, thank you for all of your hard work this year. We’re inspired by your dedication and enthusiasm, and we wish you the best of luck as you continue these projects and/or tackle other important healthcare needs.
