With more than 500 Maryland companies participating since 1987, MIPS projects create results. MIPS-supported products have generated more than $23.6 billion in sales, added jobs to the region, and infused state-of-the-art technology into the global marketplace.
Blockbuster products benefitting from MIPS include Martek Biosciences’ nutritional oils, Hughes Communications’ HughesNet, MedImmune’s Synagis, and Black & Decker’s Bullet Speed Tip Masonry Drill Bit. Emerging technologies such as WellDoc's mobile diabetes management platform and CSA Medical's diseased-tissue ablation device were advanced by MIPS-supported research.
Overall, MIPS-enhanced products have generated more than $23.6 billion in revenue and added thousands of jobs to the region.
Support the innovation economy in Maryland. Join us for the MIPS 25th Anniversary Gala and Impact Awards.
