The scouts are back!  That’s right, the first scout team for the BSC Biomedical Device Innovation (BDI) program has completed their observation of a pediatric cardiology clinical space and will be presenting the potential technology opportunities they have identified.  The  BDI program was launched this year by the BSC and involves small scout teams of students observing the day-to-day activities of a clinical space to identify opportunities for technology to target unmet clinical needs.  These teams create a list of potential opportunities and the most attractive ones will be selected to have multi-disciplinary teams of students formed around them.  These teams will bring together an array of business, science, engineering, and design students along with mentors to design a prototype device that targets each opportunity.
The first BDI scout team will discuss their findings and the opportunities they have identified with the group.
-We will discuss this technology in preparation for the Venture Team Competition kick-off in the coming weeks.
