Iowa Medical Innovation Group
The Iowa Medical Innovation Group is an interdisciplinary venture composed of students from the colleges of law, medicine, engineering, and business. During the course of each project, a team of students from these four colleges will originate an idea for a medical device; design it and produce figures or, if possible, a prototype; seek a patent; and design a business model for marketing it, together with the required legal documents. Students will be expected to participate to some degree in all aspects of project development, although the principal obligation of law students will be procurement of necessary intellectual property rights, articles of incorporation, and other business association documents, contracts, and licensing agreements. Enrollment is strictly limited to 2-3 students per year, and preference is given to students who will be 2Ls the first year and are able to continue for two years. Academic and writing credit will be given commensurate with the scope of the project.
