Tulane’s Bioinnovation Program fosters the design and development of innovative biomedical technologies and products through a balanced educational approach that combines strong foundations in science and engineering and direct collaboration with healthcare professionals and business and regulatory partners.

Our students participate in transformative biotechnology development that leverages Tulane’s state-of-the-art facilities, resources in a revitalized healthcare industry and New Orleans’ burgeoning entrepreneurial spirit to accelerate the translation of research from the laboratory to the marketplace and patient bedside.

Our students are members of collaborative teams that link partners from the:

◾School of Science & Engineering

◾School of Medicine

◾Levy-Rosenblum Institute for Entrepreneurship

◾School of Law

◾United States FDA

◾New Orleans BioInnovation Center (NOBIC)

These relationships cultivate an open and industrious environment for Bioinnovation fellows to gain critical and relevant scientific experience and the business and legal acumen to advance their careers as leaders at the interface of academia and industry.

All students enrolled in the Bioinnovation PhD Program are recipients of a fellowship that provides full tuition and guarantees a 2-year annual stipend of $30,000 with continued funding from Tulane University.
