CTSI Funding Opportunity for Early Stage Commercialization in Diagnostics and Therapeutics Development


A common critical gap in commercialization of technologies originating from the academic labs is the funding necessary to develop a robust commercialization relevant data package to reduce the risk of investment in early stage technologies. The Indiana CTSI and Indiana University School of Medicine through the office of the Associate Dean for Entrepreneurship and its Industry Collaboration Portal (ICP), are partnering with the newly created Indiana Center for Biomedical Innovation (ICBI) at IU Health to help fill this critical gap through a new support program, Technology Enhancement Awards (TEA), for early stage technologies. The technology may already reside in a start-up company or a clear plan exists to place it into a start-up. The New Program will partner with the highly successful SPARK program at Stanford University.…
