The Biodesign Network (BDN) is a continuation and expansion of the Medical Device Network (MDN), which was founded in 1997. The Biodesign Network explicitly focuses on technology transfer, providing education, advocacy and mentoring to students and faculty who wish to bring their innovations forward through the university to be developed into commercialized healthcare products. BDN also provides connections to the professional communities that specialize in biomedical technology, such as investors (angel, venture capital and institutional), med tech equipment manufacturers, and attorneys who specialize in intellectual property and new venture formation.
