The Innovation Jam is a “Shark Tank” style event to which all Duke faculty, staff, trainees and students are invited to apply and/or attend. Applicants should submit pragmatic health innovations with an immediate application at Duke and/or commercial potential.

Proposed ideas can be a concept or a simple prototype, but must have a clear business and value proposition.
