MaineBiz highlights health care startups coming out of UMaine

MaineBiz featured health care startups and spin-offs coming out of the University of Maine, like WAVED Medical, Neuright and MedRhythms. “UMaine is seeing an increase in innovations and startups in biomedical technology. Some of that stems from our growing support of research commercialization, but it also is the fruit of seeds planted over the last several years with the creation of the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences and Engineering and the Biomedical Engineering program. The faculty in that area work closely with students to develop innovations and incorporate engagement with a variety of external collaborators, making it a popular major,” said Renee Kelly, vice president for innovation and economic development.
