About the series UM Ventures and the Maryland Innovation Initiative are pleased to announce the fourth talk in the ongoing Seminar series "Innovation at the Intersection of Medicine and Engineering." The goal of the series is to stimulate conversations and interactions between engineers and health care faculty and students. The Maryland Innovation Initiative (MII) is eager to solicit new ideas, new inventions, new procedures, new software and new collaborations on topics at the intersection of engineering and medicine and provides funding to demonstrate "proof of principle," with the hope that this can lead to start-ups or licensing opportunities that can ultimately help to improve care of our patients.
