Industrial design met medical breakthroughs at the 2009 Collegiate Inventors Competition, where student designers showcase the fruits of their research in science, engineering, mathematics, technology and creative invention.

Working with a faculty advisor or as part of a team of students, designers are rewarded for their breakthroughs, discoveries, and analyses of theories that have or may lead to inventions receiving patent protection.

"(We are) pleased to be part of this outstanding young inventor recognition program," says David Kappos of the United States Patent and Trademark Office, a sponsor of the event. "Maintaining America''s technological edge is vitally important in today''s world economy. The highly talented and creative collegiate inventors who participated this year renew my confidence that this nation''s innovative tradition will continue to endure."

Top honors at the prestigious competition went to Harris Wang of Harvard, who designed a protocol that allows for faster cell programming, and Stephen Diebold, a University of Illinois industrial design major who invented an improved pointing stick for quadriplegics. The winning designers took home $25,000 prizes for their work.

Other winning designs included advances in nano-medicine and a filter that helps reduce the amount of arsenic in groundwater.
