Navigating Medical Device Development at Every Stage

The Penn Health-Tech Center for Health, Devices, and Technology, a project that launched in May 2017, hopes to unite Penn’s strengths in medicine, engineering, business, and education to connect researchers across disciplines and provide a starting point for the creation of technologies that address urgent health care needs. As Carolyn Wilkinson, associate director of Penn's Translational Neuroengineering Laboratory, who has been involved with Penn Health-Tech since its inception, explains, “If clinicians have an idea for a device and don’t know where to start, Penn Health-Tech will give them a pathway for development, providing them with a list of all the resources available throughout the University."
