JHU biomed engineering unit to get $5M

The Johns Hopkins University’s Department of Biomedical Engineering has received a Coulter Foundation Translational Partnership Award that will result in $5 million in funding over the next five years to speed the movement of new medical devices out of the university’s labs and into hospitals and doctor’s offices.

The money will support collaborations between Johns Hopkins physicians and biomedical engineering faculty in designing and developing innovative devices and diagnostics that can significantly improve the testing and treatment of patients and reduce health care costs.

The program’s goal is to identify and fund projects annually and guide them from the lab through early commercial development.
