UCLA Biodesign Accelerator

The UCLA Biodesign Accelerator fosters a robust culture of innovation for healthcare technology development.  UCLA faculty and staff developing medical device, diagnostic, and digital products have the opportunity to address key areas of development.

Fellows participate in a bi-weekly programming that consists of directed workshops and ecosystem events featuring key opinion leaders and experienced entrepreneurs.  Further collaboration opportunities are offered in partnership with the UCLA Anderson Price Center for Entrepreneurship through a paired team of MBA candidates.

Accelerator Fellows receive curated instruction during an intensive bootcamp and mentorship throughout the program from industry professionals and investors with domain expertise across the healthcare ecosystem.

Applications open in 2023.

Accelerator Track
