The first of its kind, the Center for Bioengineering Innovation and Design (CBID) has made a strong contribution to medtech innovation and global health in its first few years. Students and alumni have risen to become world-class researchers, entrepreneurs, and business leaders. Biomedical design projects — sponsored by nonprofit, foundation, and corporate partners — have been central to the development of skills that have made CBID alumni so successful.
We are deeply grateful to our partners. Their involvement is an important part of the student experience, and their financial support makes our program possible.
CBID is committed to partnering with nonprofit organizations, foundations, government agencies, and industry to bridge the gaps between education, research, clinical practice, and commercialization. CBID is self-supporting; relationships with our partners are of paramount importance in transferring technology to market and, ultimately, making a difference in health care.
Technology transfer and commercialization are an increasingly important focus of the CBID curriculum. Companies and entrepreneurs interested in licensing technologies can access our database of medical device technologies developed by CBID students and at Johns Hopkins in general.
