His pioneering work on maximizing the benefits of medical technology to patients when resources are limited has influenced policies in the US and Europe. He has quantified the ethical implications of technology allocation choices on patients and society as featured in the Financial Times and Times. At Stanford University, he was the first to introduce courses on the interface between medicine, engineering, and management in the MBA curriculum. Dr Zenios advises medical device and biopharmaceutical companies on health economics and outcomes studies for marketing and reimbursement strategies. He is also a co-founder of Culmini Inc.

Kumar, Lyn Denend, Thomas M. A three-step, proven approach to the biodesign innovation process - identify, invent, implement - provides a practical formula for innovation. The experiences of hundreds of innovators and companies, in the form of case studies, quotes and practical advice, offer a realistic, action-orientated roadmap for successful biodesign innovation.

Real-world examples, end-of-chapter projects, and Getting Started sections guide the reader through each of the key stages of the process and provide a template to create their own new medical devices. Addressing common medical, engineering, and business challenges to develop well-rounded expertise, this book is the complete package for any biodesign entrepreneur. The text is supported by valuable resources, including up-to-date industry changes. Selected Editorial Reviews Everything you ever wanted to know about medical device entrepreneurship and more.

Paul, Josh and Stefanos have led an A class team of experienced device company builders to produce a reference document to guide an aspiring device entrepreneur through all the challenges of getting an idea to market. These are tough times. John Abele, Founder Chairman, Boston Scientific Biodesign: The Process of Innovating New Medical Technologies is direct, clear and simultaneously sophisticated yet practical as it unravels the many issues related to successfully navigating the entire biodesign path from concept to final product launch.

I highly recommend that anyone seriously interested in developing an entrepreneurial venture in the medical products field read this book. It is likely to spare budding entrepreneurs a lot of trial-and-error and painful on-the-job training. Furthermore, the key to medical device innovation is getting the clinical need in correct focus.

This book will walk the student through the innovation process from how to properly define the clinical need all the way through getting the company funded and developing a quality product. Important topics like the FDA regulatory process, patents, ethics, quality and manufacturing are addressed.

No thirty-thousand foot views necessary or appropriate here. This book should be required reading for anyone wanting to develop a new medical device or to start a new company in the medical field.


Our Process

We have a different take. Stanford Biodesign was founded on the belief that innovation is a process that can be learned, practiced, and perfected. Since , we have developed, refined, and enhanced our approach to health technology innovation, which we call the biodesign innovation process. We teach the biodesign innovation process to our fellows, students, and faculty trainees through hands-on, project-based activities that follow three key phases: Identify The identify phase is first and foremost about finding important unmet health needs. By directly observing the full cycle of care from diagnosis and treatment to recovery and billing, our trainees discover problems and opportunities. This is an intense and iterative process, with progressively deeper dives into the needs that have the most potential.
