Next Generation Medtech

June 12, 2013

From a new test for glaucoma to an improved device to aid in resuscitating newborns at the time of birth, the projects presented by student teams during at Biomedical Engineering Engineering Design Day 2013 exemplified innovation, creativity, and bold thinking.

The Department of Biomedical Engineering’s undergraduate and master’s students unveiled their medical devices on the East Baltimore Johns Hopkins Medical Campus’s Armstrong Building.

PathoS Clearview, a new way to test for breast cancer cells during surgery, won the coveted “BME People’s Choice” award, after symposium attendees gave the project the largest amount of fake “Johns Hopkins investment dollars” during the lobby poster session. The same project had won the 14th annual Johns Hopkins Business Plan Competition in the medical technology and life sciences category on April 12.
