Penn Health-Tech launched in 2017 as a University-wide effort to advance Penn’s world-class breakthroughs into devices and health technologies.

Sponsored in part by a generous gift from Penn alum Jonathan Brassington, the Penn Center for Health, Devices and Technology, known simply as Penn Health-Tech, was established as a collaboration between the Perelman School of Medicine, the School of Engineering and Applied Science, and the Office of the Vice Provost of Research. Penn Health-Tech provides resources and links innovators to regional partners, including the University of Pennsylvania health system and The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, expanding Penn's biomedical technology pipeline.
