Galvanizing Engineering in Medicine Project: Entering Phase II

December 12, 2013

The Galvanizing Engineering in Medicine (GEM) Project, where clinically active UCSD faculty propose clinical challenges in need of engineering solutions, is entering Phase II. In Phase I, clinicians submitted proposals for problems. This phase invites engineers to propose solutions to these problems. The deadline for submitting proposals for Phase II is 5:00 PM on February 14, 2014.

GEM is a collaboration between the UCSD Clinical and Translational Research Institute (CTRI) and the Institute for Engineering in Medicine (IEM) that is facilitated by the Division of Innovation and INdustrry Alliances (DI2A) in the UCSD Office of Research Affairs (ORA). The goal of GEM is harness UCSD's clinical, scientific, and engineering talent to form collaborative teams for delivering innovative healthcare solutions.
