Vanderbilt Initiative in Surgery and Engineering seeks to help with interventional device prototyping, funding and support

The Vanderbilt Initiative in Surgery and Engineering (ViSE, www.vanderbilt.edu/vise), in partnership with the Vanderbilt Center for Technology Transfer and Commercialization (CTTC) and the Vanderbilt Institute for Clinical and Translational Research (VICTR), is seeking to assist the Vanderbilt community in evaluating and developing early-stage ideas, and then turning them into proof-of-concept interventional device prototypes, with the goal of eventual translation to human clinical use.

To facilitate this, ViSE will provide (1) engineering support in assessing the feasibility of the idea and (2) financial and manpower support for the creation of prototype for feasible projects.
