National Institutes of Health (NIH)–2020 Design by Biomedical Undergraduate Teams (DEBUT) Challenge

The NIBIB DEBUT Challenge solicits design projects that develop innovative solutions to unmet health and clinical problems.  Areas of interest for the biomedical engineering projects include, but are not limited to: diagnostics, therapeutics, technologies for underserved populations or low-resource settings, point-of-care systems, precision medicine, preventive medicine, technologies to aid individuals with disabilities, and HIV/AIDS prevention and care.

In addition to prizes where there is no restriction on the healthcare technology being developed, two categorical prizes will be awarded on: 1) HIV/AIDS prevention and care, and 2) healthcare technologies for underrepresented populations and/or for low-resource settings, with funds from the NIH Office of AIDS Research (OAR) and the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities (NIMHD), respectively.  Student teams participating in capstone design projects are especially encouraged to enter the challenge.
