The Health Innovation Lab

"Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail."

– Ralph Waldo Emerson

As part of the GPMR program the Health Innovation lab is working towards innovating health innovation. We believe, like others, that innovation arises from creativity, sparks of inspiration, and an open and collaborative environment. But there is also evidence that innovation can be evidence-based: it can be systematic. It can be studied, taught, and itself be subject to innovation.  The HIL is a place where entrepreneurs, faculty and institutions use innovation and technolgy to develop creative and scientifically informed solutions to advance health. It's a space where open innovation strategies merge with the start-up ecosystem. Whether you are a student, faculty or institution, the HIL is your partner in your journey to and on blazing new trails.
