OHSU MedTech Alliance

This program creates collaboration by connecting OHSU innovators and technologies with investors and external industry to promote commercialization and entrepreneurship. 

How does MedTech Alliance work?

OHSU hosts meetings 1-2 times per year that are designed to showcase OHSU medical technologies and OHSU startup companies. Technology presentations will be geared towards MedTech Alliance members interested in exploring collaboration and/or licensing opportunities, while startup company presentations will be geared towards members interested in investment opportunities. To receive information about MedTech Alliance meetings, please sign up for our distribution list using the online form. Signing up requires no additional commitment but simply allows OHSU to effectively contact those interested in the MedTech Alliance program.

At any time, MedTech Alliance members can view existing technology opportunities via the TTBD Available Technologies web portal. This portal contains non-confidential summaries of technologies that are at various stages of development. TTBD adds to this portal regularly as new technologies emerge. Each summary contains details for the TTBD staff member who should be contacted for more information.
