UT Advance - Innovating for Health (i4Health) Institute

UT Advance logo that reads, "UT Advance, Drug Dynamics Institute"

The Innovating for Health (i4Health) Institute (formerly the Drug Dynamics Institute) takes an interdisciplinary approach to preparing students, researchers, and emerging entrepreneurs. Advanced methods, including the flipped classroom, online training (Take Your Medicine), and 1-day startup sessions provide hands-on opportunities to experience health innovation development.

Participants learn how to identify and develop ideas for novel products and services, perform market validation analyses, conduct customer discovery interviews, assess the competitive landscape, develop prototypes, and apply skills for effectively working in teams.

The Lester Entrepreneurial Scholars, based in the College of Pharmacy, and the Innovating for Health certificate program have produced motivated entrepreneurs who have gone on to write successful SBIR grants, win power pitch competitions, obtain prestigious fellowships/residencies, and be invited to participate in local, national, and global follow on programs.
