The BOTLab team entered GCMI’s Accelerator program with a promising technology, clinical need and prototype. Dr. Darren Roblyer shared with us why the team is making this strategic course correction, learnings from BOTLabs’ time in GCMI’s Accelerator program and next steps.
Supporting the next generation of biomedical innovators at Georgia Tech – our Capstone Program Support Summary
In mid-November 2019, six student-led Georgia Tech Capstone teams put their medical device ideas to the test at GCMI. These are five of their stories.
Aspiring to create a brand new solution for patient aspiration during EGDs – GT Capstone Day at GCMI: Bullseye
Georgia Tech biomedical engineering students Oscar Gutierrez, Ahmed Alnamos, Nishani Kanthasamy and Sondos Alnamos make up the team ‘Bullseye’ for the Fall 2019 edition of the Capstone Program. Their device seeks to provide a solution for patients who are at risk of aspiration but do not otherwise require general anesthesia during Esophagogastroduodenoscopy, or EGD, procedures
Aprons of Shield set out to design a device that achieves full-body shielding from radiation for clinicians while still giving them the ability to use their hands without being weighed down by aprons or increasing exposure.
As the year comes to a close and many of us look forward to a holiday respite, I find myself full of enthusiasm having recently returned from Israel advancing our accelerator program with Rambam Health Center and participating in the mHEALTH Israel Women’s Meetup at Google for Startups Campus in Tel Aviv. We live in…
Bridging disciplines to create a new solution for central and arterial line placement – GT Capstone Day at GCMI: S.A.V.A.G.E.
Georgia Tech Biomedical Engineering students Robert Bridenhagen, Gabriel Cruz, and Annika Clawson teamed up with Computer Engineering student Matthew Aspinwall and Electrical Engineering student Matthew Zilvetti to form the interdisciplinary team S.A.V.A.G.E.
Leading Lap has redesigned the trocar’s tip to prevent puncturing or injuring organs upon insertion. Georgia Tech biomedical engineering students Hailey Avis, Cameron Bennett, Will Kamnick and Katherine Strickland make up this team for the Fall 2019 Capstone Design Expo.
Thanks to GCMI’s Capstone Day, the team was able to use their device in a highly clinical, practical situation. “Being able to test the device in a cadaveric setting thanks to GCMI was the best opportunity we could have been afforded at this stage,” Lando said.
The most expensive study is one you have to repeat. 10 things to know before you start your GLP study.
Good laboratory practice (GLP) studies are an essential component to medical product development and regulatory submissions. They are highly rigorous, are conducted in compliance with a legally bound code of federal regulations (21 CFR Part 58) and should be conducted by qualified scientists and staff of an accredited contract research organization (CRO). They are also…
Finding a trustworthy CRO for preclinical studies is a top priority for medical product innovators. It is always more cost-effective for companies to get it right the first time when selecting data sets, study endpoints and a preclinical partner. In other words, the most expensive study is the one you have to repeat.
