We're building the future of medical technologies
Streamlining the innovation process, the Medical Device Accelerator at the Center for Medical Innovation is designed to turn ideas into commercially successful products.
Recognizing the challenges unique to developing new medical technologies, CMI takes a hands-on approach with the accelerator process, inviting inventors and industry experts to work together as collaborators focused on building technologically innovative, market-ready devices.
Good ideas can come from many places. We've designed our accelerator process to enable those ideas and cutting edge research from several sources including
- Principal Investigators (PIs), clinicians, staff, and researchers at the University of Utah
- Disclosures and projects licensed to the Technology Licensing Office
- External individuals or groups outside of the University of Utah (e.g. physicians from other healthcare systems)
- Projects identified from internal initiatives at the Center for Medical Innovation
