START YOUR INNOVATION ENGINE.
The Jacobs Institute’s i2R, or Idea to Reality Center, is at the cutting edge of vascular medicine. The i2R is focused on developing novel, smart-engineered endovascular medical devices at a faster pace and in a more cost-effective way, getting them to patients sooner. The i2R creates devices designed by or with the physicians who use them. Physicians are on-site and available to i2R engineers so that our engineering team can quickly prototype and validate potential devices. Our unique medical device development model streamlines the proof-of-concept process.
THIS IS NOT YOUR TYPICAL MEDICAL INNOVATION CENTER.
We think well outside the box, so your cutting-edge ideas don’t wind up on the cutting room floor. Instead, we help your idea get the jump-start it needs, with support from the right people, in the right place, at the right time.
THE RIGHT PEOPLE IN THE RIGHT PLACE AT THE RIGHT TIME.
The Jacobs Institute’s i2R has pulled out all the stops. This medical device proof-of-concept center ensures that your life-saving vascular device ideas are quickly designed, prototyped, and tested by our talented team of engineers, with constant feedback from the experts and most informed users: physicians.
NEXT STOP: REALITY.
Our design process sparks invention and re-invention, until we get it right. We’ve created a powerhouse of engineering, device development, research, and clinical expertise under one roof. We carefully evaluate the target problem, prove that the technology will work, and rapidly develop the device.
The i2R helps you accelerate your idea throughout the commercialization process, making your idea a reality.
At present, we are strategically bringing projects into the i2R. If you are interested in submitting an idea, please provide your information below.
