how it works


To stimulate the initial innovation process, the Center offers seed grants on a competitive basis. These grants are only made available to faculty applicants who have formed into multidisciplinary teams composed of faculty members representing at least two of the following fields of study; medicine, engineering, business or law. Applications must identify an unmet clinical need and address the need through innovative medical device development. Grant preference will be given to teams that have a co-principle investigator who has completed the BioVentures certification program.
