Coulter College is a training program focused on translation of biomedical innovations.
Student design teams are guided by faculty and clinical experts through a highly dynamic
process designed to help them better understand how innovations can meet clinical
needs, while providing tools and approaches used to evolve identified problems into
novel solutions. The Wallace H. Coulter Foundation supports the program.
In a creative environment, participants will learn how to evaluate the best point
of leverage within a given clinical need and understand how to evaluate possible solutions.
By the end of the program, participants will understand how to balance providing clinical
benefits alongside a viable commercial model.
