Innovation Grand Rounds

Surgical Innovations, Pediatric Device Consortium, QB3, Catalyst, the Rosenman Institute, Entrepreneurship and the UCSF-UC Berkeley collaborative program, Master of Translational Medicine, are joining hands (while continuing their individual and other established activities) to share resources, expertise and lessons learned to further facilitate innovation, translational research and entrepreneurship in healthcare. As a first initiative, a joint monthly Innovation Grand Rounds launched September 2020 and will continue in the coming months on every second Tuesday of the month, where various stakeholders share their expert opinions, personal experiences and other insights from the broad area of medical innovation.

We welcome any interested personnel/groups to attend these grand rounds, present their experience in healthcare innovation and/reach out to us in partnering on any potential future activities. Please contact [email protected] if you are interested in attending or presenting. Meetings are currently virtual via zoom.
