Dear Colleagues,

Earlier this year, I was very pleased to announce the formation of the Penn Center for Health, Devices, and Technology (Penn Health-Tech), which is uniting Penn’s strengths throughout campus in medicine, engineering, and business to create new technologies and advance research in medical devices and systems. 

Penn Health-Tech is now accepting proposals for technology-based projects which address important healthcare needs.  Please see below guidelines on the online application submission or visit http://healthtech.upenn.edu/ for additional information on networking and collaborative opportunities.

All best,
Jon
