Novel biodesign adapted for the academic and hospital setting

MESH Innovation Teams Biodesign Program

MESH Innovation Teams is a collaborative year-long program connecting Mass General Brigham clinicians to engineers, MBA candidates, and entrepreneurs to solve critical clinical problems. Collaborating with Harvard Innovation Labs, candidates will join a MESH Team and obtain real world experience and first-hand exposure to generating healthcare innovations and creating companies in the complex medical environment throughout the academic year. MESH provides team members with access to MGH and Harvard physicians, residents, faculty, experienced entrepreneurs, venture capital networking, and Mass General Brigham Innovation along with formal training courses in healthcare entrepreneurship with the ultimate goal of patenting innovations and/or forming start-up companies.

To date, Innovation Teams has formed 9 companies and produced numerous intellectual property disclosures or patents.
