Call for Entries: The 2017 Robert Howard Next Step Award

April 18th, 2017

Calling all Stanford Biodesign students, post-docs and visiting student researchers creating medical technology innovations! LUNAR is now accepting entries for the 6th annual Robert Howard Next Step Awards. This is great opportunity for students to showcase their knowledge and share it with the design community.

LUNAR will provide hands-on design and engineering consultation to the winners. This usually consists of 2 design process and/or regulatory advising sessions with LUNAR’s Life Sciences team, along with 1 to 2 focused 1-week design sprints. In the past, the team has provided expertise in branding, design for manufacturing, sketching and investor pitching.

The 2016 winners were Lunair, a mini air pollution filtering system that communicates air quality via app, and Palmm, a wearable device that treats hyperhidrosis or uncontrollable sweating of the hands. 

Applications will be accepted until May 7, 2017.
