Center for Biomedical Innovation and Technology (CBIT)
The Yale University Center for Biomedical Innovation and Technology (CBIT) is an interdisciplinary initiative to foster greater innovation in medical technology. It is a consortium of engineers, clinicians, scientists, innovators and entrepreneurs to help incubate, support, implement, and potentially bring to market novel technical approaches to address under-met clinical needs. CBIT helps students, staff, and faculty commercialize biomedical ideas and submitting an idea via this site does not create an ownership interest for CBIT.
In addition to catalyzing medical device innovation and development that aim to improve clinical efficiency and efficacy, and lower healthcare costs, CBIT also provides new research and educational opportunities for Yale faculty, students and staff; technical expertise and clinical access for industry partners; and a portfolio of projects for investment organizations.
