NCIIA-funded course at JHU generates new biomedical start-ups

A 2010 course and program grant awarded to Center of Bioengineering Innovation and Design (CBID, itself supported by an NCIIA Course and Program grant) at Johns Hopkins University has swiftly returned on its investment. Two biomedical device start-ups have spun out of the Master's Level Education in Bioengineering Innovation course:

Grant PI Bob Allen reports that so far 15 students have graduated from the program with MS degrees. JHPIEGO, JHU’s global health partner, is further developing two other projects from the grant: an electronic partogram and the antenatal screening kit (a 2010 E-Team grantee and Popular Science invention of the year).
