Biomedical Innovation Program


The Biomedical Innovation Program (BIP) at OHSU helps to accelerate the delivery of healthcare technologies from academia to the marketplace and thereby to improve health care. To reach this goal the program fosters collaborative translational research that will lead to technology commercialization within a 3-5 year horizon.

The Biomedical Innovation Program cultivates, evaluates and funds promising translational projects with the objective of moving innovative technologies to clinical application through commercialization. Do you have an idea for a technical innovation to improve patient care?
