2012 National Yang-Ming University Technology & Business Model Creativity Contest

In order to cultivate teachers' and students' research creativity as well as their ability to combine technology with commercial products, the Business Center of Industry-Academia Liaison held the 2012 National Yang-Ming University Technology & Business Model Creativity Contest. The contest spanned five months with four competing teams receiving awards. The awards ceremony was held on May 24, 2012 at Conference Room 929 in the Library and Information Communication Building of Yang Ming University. President Dr. Kung-Yee Liang presented the awards and not only congratulated the award teams but also recognized the importance of this competition.

The themes of this year's competition focused on: creative projects that applied technical applications or business models in biotechnology and related fields such as medical equipment, health care, biophotonics, biomaterials, and medical humanities. The panel of judges, basing their decision on stringent criteria, selected the winners. First place was given to the team led by Professor Fu-Jen Kao, Institute of Biophotonics, for their project on the development of induction driven LED lighting for thoracic surgery. Second place was given to the team led by Professor Chun-Li Lin, Department of Biomedical Engineering, and Dr. Chao-Yu Chen, Chang Gung Memorial Hospital at Linkou, for their project on the development of fixation plate and instruments for minimally invasive surgery in distal radius fractures. Third place was given to the team led by Professor Chia Wei Sun, Biophotonics & Molecular Imaging Research Center, for their project, the development of a near-infrared(NIR) light brain imaging system. Finally, an outstanding project award was given to the team led by Professor Sai-Wei Yang, Institute of Biomedical Engineering, for their project, the design of an inflatable disaster prevention backpack.

After receiving the award, the first placed Biophotonics Modern Optics Laboratory expressed that the current cost of surgical lighting systems (particularly halogen lamps) was quite high and that thoracic surgery lighting incurred dead spots. Thus, they developed a wireless sensor lighting system in which an LED is placed at the top of a magnetic inducing electric blanket. Then in a "wireless manner," the electric current will cause the LED to emit light. The application of this technique in auxiliary lighting devices during thoracic surgery will thus illuminate dark areas of the internal cavity. The development of this technology will not only save on cost and energy, but will be competitive and effective in a business sense.

The Business Center of Industry-Academia Liaison has received very positive responses for their first Technical & Business Model Creativity Contest. The teachers' and students' research has been able to shine through this platform. The students are very happy that the University has initiated this creative competition. Not only can everyone learn from each other and brainstorm, but it will further promote the idea of campuses.
