Taking on the complexities and challenges of living well across the lifespan.

2022 Fellowship Early Deadline

The framework of the Live Well is a new hybrid that integrates traditional project teams under a studio model, with the structure and titles more commonly found in research labs in engineering and the sciences. This model is part of the new framework that represents the processes evolving in corporations in R&D, as well as levels 3 and 4 of translational research. Both R&D and translational research models are attempting to integrate design thinking to increase scope and decrease cycle time from concept to solution.

Fellowship cycles run on academic calendars. Applications are for the 2022-2023 Academic Year and submissions are ongoing.
