The NC TraCS Team Science Resource hosted a workshop entitled “Engineering Solutions to Health Problems,” with the goal of connecting engineers and clinicians to foster research relationships and develop feasible future projects. Attendees submitted need statements for discussion in working groups, then brainstormed possible solutions, and committed to continued collaboration. A second workshop was held at the School of Nursing, entitled “Engineering a New Wave of Nursing Science.” This workshop brought together engineers and practitioners in nursing to introduce need statements and project ideas. These successful events were sponsored by the Joint Department of Biomedical Engineering, as well as The North Carolina Translational and Clinical Sciences Institute and The NSF Nanosystems Engineering Research Center for Advanced Self-Powered Systems of Integrated Sensors and Technologies (ASSIST); with collaboration from RTI International and North Carolina A&T State University.
