The New Zealand Health Innovation Hub has been created to help nurture and grow New Zealand’s health technology industry, and to support the widespread adoption of leading innovations developed within the public health sector.
The Hub will bring together health and industry innovators, streamlining progression from concept to prototype to clinical validation and commercial success.
New Zealand has some of the sharpest minds at the frontline of healthcare, and our private sector health industry partners are keen to collaborate to improve health and the economy.
Let’s get cracking!
It’s our job to deftly connect people who, together, can realise the tremendous benefits that new health technology products and service innovations can deliver for New Zealanders – and the rest of the world.
Don’t wait for an opportunity, make one.
If you’ve identified a problem and come up with a solution, let’s talk.
Chair of New Zealand Health Innovation Hub’s scientific sub-committee appointed
Chairman of the New Zealand Health Innovation Hub Dr Murray Horn is delighted to announce Sir Peter Gluckman’s appointment as Chair of its Technical and Scientific Advisory sub-committee.
The Technical and Scientific Advisory sub-committee will engage in assessing and assisting those with ideas that will lead to improved health outcomes either through break-through technology, devices, research or treatment regimes.
Dr Horn says “The Hub has been created to strengthen partnerships between our healthcare sector, industry and research organisations so we can fast-track the development of new health technologies and service innovations. It is a real honour to have Sir Peter heading the scientific sub-committee, he has committed considerable effort to promoting the public understanding of science and made himself widely available.”
Sir Peter is one of New Zealand’s best known scientists and an international advocate for science, promoting the translation of discoveries in biomedical research into improvements in long term health outcomes. His research has won him numerous awards and international recognition. He co-founded the world-class Liggins Institute and the LENScience educational programme for secondary school pupils. Sir Peter is the author of more than 500 scientific papers and reviews and editor of eight books, including three influential textbooks in his subject area of evolution, development and disease.
