The Stanford Medical Innovation Conference, hosted annually by the Stanford Student Biodesign and Biopharma (SSB), provides a unique forum for participants to learn about and discuss the newest developments in a biotechnology or medical devicerelated field through presentations and discussion panels. The target audience includes undergraduate and graduate students, researchers, doctors, engineers, and entrepreneurs from across the country.
This year’s theme, "Developing Technologies for the Developing World", addresses the lack of accessibility to adequate medical technology that plagues many developing countries. By developing products and technology with cost-effectiveness and portability in mind, we can not only educate more people about health, but also provide the treatment that many of them desperately need. Although our focus is on technology for the developing world, these products can be applied universally to improve the quality of life and healthcare for all.
Guest speakers include Dr. Krista Donaldson of D-Rev, José Gómez-Márquez of MIT, and Dr. Michele Barry of Stanford.
