  • Forum on Innovation and Entrepreneurship
  • in Biomedical Engineering
  • Education

The history of scientific and technical discovery
teaches us the human race is poor in independent
thinking and creative imagination. Albert
The ChallengeA principal conclusion of
theNational Academy of Sciences Committee on
Science, Engineering and Public Policy report on
Graduate Education
  • many of the job opportunities of the future
    will favor students with greater breadth of
    academic and career skills, so the universities
    and their partners in the graduate education
    enterprise should therefore cooperate to broaden
    curricular options for graduate students

BME 507 Fundamentals of Biomedical
Engineering Management
  • Technology Development
  • Translational Research, Development,
    Marketability, Commercialization
  • Principles of Intellectual Property
  • Disclosures, Provisional Patents, Patents, Claims
  • National vs. International
  • Capitalization
  • Angel Funding, Investment Banks, Equity, IPOs

  • GMPs, GLPs, GCPs, QA, QC

BME 501 Engineering Principles in
Molecular and Cell Biology
  • Context Based Learning
  • Molecular bioengineering as based on drugs and
    devices for the diagnosis and treatment of
    disease and injury
  • Engineering a Biomolecular Based Medical Device
  • Research of Current Technology

Encouraging Innovation Entrepreneurship
  • BME is directly tied to the Center for
    Biotechnology, a NYS ED resource for bridging
    academia and industry.
  • Students encouraged to take advantage of Industry
    Internship or Patent Law Internship program.
  • Grad and Undergrads encouraged to work in the
    Universitys Incubator facility.
  • Faculty and Students encouraged towards
    translational research, technology development,
    and commercialization (formation of companies).
  • Innovative Technology Development grants through
    Center for Biotechnology

Are we successful?
  • Entrepreneurial activities are key to future of
    BME, and training of students.
  • This goal can be achieved in many ways.
  • Time will tell.
  • If change is to occur, it will be through the
    uncoordinated action of many persons at many
    institutions who try to consider what is best for
    their students and their profession and then take
    appropriate action.
