In support of scholarly work, we provide assistance with grant writing, research methodology, survey design, statistical analysis and the development of new research proposals.

Whether you're a student, faculty or staff member, alumnus or member of the broader health care community, our team can help you design, launch and complete your research project.

Creative Simulation Devices

Substrate for aspiration practice.

We're particularly fond of developing and testing cost-effective simulation devices for teaching skills such as bladder aspiration, hip fusion aspiration, vascular access and airway management.

From 3-D printing hip joints that show up properly on a X-ray to crafting human-like tissues from everyday materials, our team members are known for their creativity.
