During summer 2014, a team of UD BME students were selected to attend the BMES Coulter College. The team included 6 BME juniors and was led by Dr. Anita Singh (Assistant Professor for Instruction in BME) and by a clinical collaborator, Michael McCulloch, from Nemours.
Coulter College is a training program supported by the Wallace H. Coulter Foundation that focuses on the translation of biomedical innovations. Topics include patent law, regulatory strategy, reimbursement codes, working with technology transfer offices, follow-on funding sources, and more. Student design teams are guided by faculty and clinical experts through a highly dynamic process that is designed to help them better understand how innovations can meet clinical needs, and that provides tools and approaches that are required to accelerate the translation of biomedical innovations to the market place to improve patient care.
