Think Tank Devices Program

We support Indiana CTSI associated investigators who are working to advance their innovative medical devices and software ideas through early phase development toward commercialization and clinical use.

Andrew Brightman, PhD, professor of engineering practice in the Weldon School of Biomedical Engineering at Purdue University and Thomas O’Sullivan, PhD, associate professor in the department of electrical engineering at the University of Notre Dame, co-lead the Device Think Tank program.

For more information, please contact Device Think Tank Facilitator: Kara Garcia, PhD, assistant professor of radiology and imaging sciences and CTSI Navigator for IU School of Medicine-Evansville (Southwest Indiana) at
