Dr. Heather Canavan, Associate Professor of biomedical engineering in UNM’s Department of Chemical & Biological Engineering, and her students were the guests on the February 16 KUNM University Showcase. The group of professors, students and staff at UNM have formed a new company called Adaptive Biomedical Design that focuses on designing and developing better biomedical and medical devices to improve patient care. Three of the adaptive design technologies from the group were chosen as projects for participation in STC and the Innovation Academy’s NSF I-Corps entrepreneurial program this fall. The 5-year, $443,631 I-Corp program provides entrepreneurial training and seed funding to ten teams each semester to test the market for commercialization and start-up opportunities for their inventions. After completion of the semester training, projects may qualify for larger funding from the I-Corps and SBIR/STTR programs.
