Medtech companies on the hunt for new product ideas and engineering talent would do well to pay attention to the winners of the Biomedical Engineering Innovation Design Awards (BMEidea), a new showcase competition for students involved in developing medical products.
Accepting the inaugural BMEidea awards on behalf of their teams (from left): Elizabeth Tran (Washington University, St. Louis), Ashkon Shaahinfar (John Hopkins University, Baltimore), and Amy Lee (Stanford University; Palo Alto, CA).
Winners of the inaugural BME idea competition were announced in June, during the Medical Design Excellence Awards (MDEA) ceremony at the Medical Design & Manufacturing (MD&M) East exposition in New York City.
The BMEidea competition recognizes excellence in student biomedical innovation. Winning teams at this year's competition were selected from a pool of entries submitted by some of the nation's top biomedical engineering departments, and were judged by a panel of faculty and industry representatives.
