NIMHD is partnering with the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB) on the 2020 DEBUT Challenge, a competition that recognizes undergraduate excellence in biomedical design and innovation. The challenge is open to teams of undergraduate students working on novel solutions to unmet health and clinical problems. Co-sponsored by VentureWell since 2016, this challenge will now include an NIMHD-sponsored prize focused on the development of accessible healthcare technologies for low-resource settings.

The DEBUT Healthcare Technologies for Low-Resource Settings prize will challenge the next generation of biomedical engineers to focus their attention on specific health care needs among underserved populations, who may benefit from innovative solutions.

Submissions are accepted from January 9, 2020 to June 1, 2020, 11:59 p.m. EDT. For more information and to submit entries, visit the DEBUT Challenge page on the NIBIB website or Venturewell.org
