MethodSense is a RTP based Regulatory Affairs and Quality Assurance consultancy and the developers of LuminLogic software. MethodSense is focused on the medical device and combination product industries. MethodSense has earned an international reputation for successfully addressing very difficult projects and fast becoming a premier company for developing a professional career in life science consulting. Rita King, CEO and Senior Regulatory Consultant, and Russ King, President, have appreciated and benefited from the breadth of skills that BME graduates bring to the workplace. Serving as a mentor to students over the years and being a guest lecturer to design classes on multiple occasions, this year Mr. King has broadened the relationship with the BME department by sponsoring the MethodSense Design Competition. The competition is designed to encourage students to think beyond their innovation product to consider the path to market including regulatory concerns, reimbursement, capital needs and more. Student design teams will have the opportunity to compete for recognition and a cash award of $10,000 to further support their innovation. Thank you, Russ and Rita King, and MethodSense for your generous support of students and encouraging the spirit of innovation and entrepreneurship in BME!
