The Biomedical Zone has launched a medical device and software co-development lab to give students and clinicians the opportunity to co-develop solutions to real-life problems. Students can hone their engineering skills through relevant work experience in a clinical setting, while clinicians are given the chance to identify and develop high-impact, needs-based projects with biomedical applications. Furthermore, clinicians receive access to the intellectual and technical resources within the biomedical engineering student body at Ryerson University.
These short, eight-month projects are created and developed by clinical staff, and give St. Michael’s clinicians the opportunity to advance important, practical (non-research) projects.

Summer/Fall 2016 Project: Neurovascular Patient Database
The Co-Development Lab team will be developing an electronic tool for robust tracking of neurovascular patients treated non-invasively at St. Michael’s. This tool will be custom tailored and will be applicable to other minimally invasive therapy / interventional radiology programs.
Below we have attached an Expression of Interest Form to begin the application process for a clinician who is making a suggestion for a project for the Co-Development Lab. A staff member will reach out to clinical staff after reviewing the EOI form.
Intellectual Property (IP) Policy : IP will be owned by SMH for the duration of the 8-month project. If, after project completion, students and clinicians (the Inventors) wish to commercialize the product, they will disclose to SMH and inventors will apply to Biomedical Zone. IP will be assigned to the co-inventors, following the SMH pre-existing agreement. If they are accepted, the co-inventors will fall under the inventor-owned IP clause of the Biomedical Zone’s entrepreneurial stream.
