About the Organisation
The Biodesign Innovation Fellowship is at the heart of Stanford Biodesign circle of impact.
Each year, the Biodesign Innovation Fellows learn a project-based approach for identifying important healthcare needs, inventing innovative diagnostics, devices, or other health technologies to address them, and preparing to bring those products into patient care through start-up, corporate, or other implementation channels.
In addition, they become part of the Stanford Biodesign community, which is a life-long, worldwide network of innovators passionate about improving healthcare.
