IDEA Lab creates solutions.

We develop solutions for problems in anesthesia and healthcare – locally, nationally, and globally.


IDEA Lab is based within and retains the core mission of Dartmouth Hitchcock Health. Our activities and efforts will always remain targeted towards supporting patient care, education, and research.


We provide the education, tools, and space for ideas to develop, grow, and thrive. Our lab facilitates the continuous process of improving the viability of an innovation concept.


We support applications for external grant funding (e.g. foundation grants, tech incubators, and federal SBIR/STTR programs) and will assist with applications for vetted concepts.
