Abstract:


A University of Notre Dame professor was suffering from a chronic stuffy nose, so he went to see a local otorhinolaryngology specialist (ENT). That doctor’s visit started a collaboration which presents an interesting case study of an attempt to commercialize a university-based innovation.

Today, that collaboration is known as BioMedical Constructs, or “BMC”. BMC’s focus is on using 3D printing in the medical field, but in a way, after an early pivot, that is different from many of the other companies which are working at the nexus of 3D printing and medical data.

Keywords:

3D printing, ENT, industry collaboration, medical device, outcomes, technology transfer, university.

Affiliation:
