2019 - 2020 Call for Proposals

Do you have a challenge that needs a new medical device?

Clinicians and corporate sponsors are invited to submit project proposals to work with teams of MIT engineering students to create prototype solutions to address an “I wish I had” need that they experience in their practice. We are actively seeking projects with mechanical and/or electronic challenges, where the problem is defined, but the solution space is open.
