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.
These motivated teams compete for and are awarded Biodesign NEXT extension funding to continue working on their projects. 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 Marissa Pittard, former Biodesign student and co-founder of Beaming Health, as well as project presentations and prizes for the teams.
