Weill Cornell CTSC Offers New Biodesign and Creativity Course

The Biodesign and Creativity Course for Medical Drug and Device Design

Sponsored by the Clinical and Translational Science Center (CTSC)

The CTSC invites students, fellows, and faculty to participate in a new Biodesign and Creativity Course for Medical Drug and Device Design. The curriculum will provide a wide array of learning modalities. Moreover, the biodesign and creativity process will provide a lifelong skill that can be applied broadly to any specialty exposing participants to seldom taught but essential aspects of healthcare  innovation. At the end of the course, multi-disciplinary teams will create a new device, a research proposal, an information technology idea or process that addresses a clinically relevant unmet need.

This CTSC course is available for credit through the Weill Cornell Graduate School. Successful teams will be eligible to apply for future funding to support their project through the CTSC.
