Every summer, Johns Hopkins Biomedical Engineering students work side-by-side with primary care providers in some of the world’s most underserved communities. They assess the needs and then design, prototype, and commercialize the next generation of medical devices that are transforming global health care.

Johns Hopkins’ Center for Bioengineering Innovation and Design (CBID) forms teams of students, doctors, and engineers, and provides them the resources and guidance to solve a wide range of health care challenges, both here and abroad.

This summer, CBID students are:

  • in Uganda, designing a triage system to identify illnesses in newborns
  • in India, developing a new device for GI therapeutic endoscopy procedures
  • in Brazil, researching a new surveillance system to identify Zika vectors
  • in China, investigating respiratory and cardiac needs
