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.
The awards honor Robert Howard who served as VP of Engineering with LUNAR for 15 years. He was a Stanford Alumnus (MSME ’86) and served as a lecturer in the Department of Product Design. Robert loved helping people, teaching, tinkering, making the impossible possible, designing healthcare products, and being involved in the Stanford community – in particular the Biodesign program.
