Radical innovation depends upon entirely new ways of perceiving and interpreting the world around us. Therefore, it relies upon a diverse set of experts collaborating widely across disciplines.

Nowhere is this more evident than in medicine; in the development of tangible products—such as drugs, devices, and software applications—but also intangibles, including clinical practice, treatment strategies, and protocols.

Surprisingly, despite the obvious centrality of design in medicine, formal teaching of design thinking and practice to medical students is notably absent. To redress this, we have recently launched [email protected] at The Sidney Kimmel Medical College.

The purpose of this lecture and panel discussion is to bring together experts who represent a new wave of extreme collaborators in medicine and design; including the epidemiologist, Dr. Raymond Neutra—son of famed architect Richard Neutra—whose life is embedded in both medicine and architecture.
