Johns Hopkins Startups Unveil Innovative Medical- and Health-Based Technologies at Dec. 10 Event

Release Date: December 9, 2014

Journalists are invited to hear from more than 20 Johns Hopkins-affiliated startups on Dec. 10 at an event entitled "A Healthcare Technology Day." The showcase, which will run from 2 to 6 p.m. at The Johns Hopkins Hospital, will feature presentations by company management and offer opportunities for one-on-one interviews (see schedule below).

The event is co-sponsored by Johns Hopkins Technology Ventures and venture capital firm Greenspring Associates. The goal is to introduce promising Johns Hopkins startup companies to investors. The companies are developing technologies that meet pressing needs for innovative, health-related solutions. The showcase is a key opportunity for companies to share their recent milestones and accomplishments with local and national investors, endowments, foundations and health organizations. Among the innovations presented will be a particle that guides the body’s immune system, a mobile application that evaluates a patient’s respiratory function and assists with treatment techniques, and software that protects patient privacy.
