Letters of Intent | Due December 1, 2017

The University of Missouri Coulter Translational Partnership Program (MU Coulter Program) is an interdisciplinary, cross‐departmental program proven to accelerate the translation of biomedical innovations into products that improve patient care. The MU Coulter Program bridges the gap between academic research and industry by providing funding to engineer-clinician teams to perform experiments and generate data that will attract funding from investors and industry partners to continue commercialization of the technology.

The program deploys up to $1 million/year in funding and support for translational projects. Select project teams are provided with resources and the opportunity to work with experts to pressure-test the commercial viability of their ideas using universal business criteria as well as the unique requirements of biomedical product commercialization.

All technologies with the potential to directly impact human health are considered (e.g. therapeutic drugs and devices, medical imaging, monitoring devices, biosensors, biomaterials, and platform technologies) for funding. Most relevant are technologies that have a reasonable chance of achieving a university exit within 3-5 years. The project/technology must be an idea or invention based on MU intellectual property.

For more information on this opportunity, eligibility requirements, additional application details, or the program overall, please attend one of the information sessions, visit www.coulter.missouri.edu, or contact Cynthia Helphingstine or Jaya Ghosh at the MU Coulter Program Office.
