Assigned as team leader for gingerbread house contest at work - help?

(just outside Wash DC)
OK, so the boss at my new job approached me to see if I'd take on coordinating with staff to create a (hopefully) winning gingerbread house creation. I'm new - no's not an option.
Theme includes research lab & hospital theme. Thought a trip to a candy store & some imagination would satisfy decorating. But alas- I'm struggling! Need ideas or resource(s) for edible laboratory items (test tubes, research machines, monitors) and hospital room type items (should be somewhat easier I think). A health care professional or scientists would truly be awesome!
Have I bit off more than an unexperienced edible house builder can swallow? Kudos doing the impossible in a new job? Help?
