UMaine’s impact on biomedical innovation: Startups and spin offs
New England Council member, the University of Maine has been engaging in more projects relating to innovation and startups in the biomedical field.
This level of success began with the creation of the University of Maine’s Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences and Engineering and the Biomedical Engineering program. Success stories can be seen with companies such as MedRhythms, a digital health company started in Portland, Maine which has raised $36 million in funding. These programs encourage founders to learn more about how to handle the path of bringing a service or product to the larger market.
