Event Details

The MGB Center for COVID Innovation launched last week with a virtual Town Hall (recording here) focusing on devices. The response from our innovators has been terrific and the work on PPE is moving forward at a pace that reflects the critical clinical needs. The next town hall will focus on Diagnostics and will be held on Tuesday March 31 at 11am. This event, which will accommodate up to 1000 participants, will be recorded and made available for later viewing.

More About MGB COVID Innovation Center:
In an effort to coordinate and facilitate the development of new innovations that flatten the COVID19 curve and protect/empower our front-line clinical staff, we are launching an MGB Center for COVID Innovation. The Center will serve to: 1) identify and empower experts from inside and outside MGB that can move meritorious ideas towards practice, and 2) secure internal and external resources necessary to operationalize these ideas.
