The Case-Coulter Translational Research Partnership (CCTRP) is pleased to launch the PY2019 Coulter Award program. The CCTRP awards funding at 2 levels, pilot and full projects.
Successful projects often focus on the development of prototype products, building relationships with companies, performing clinical feasibility studies, obtaining regulatory approval, and other activities that companies or business experts indicate are the essential last steps before a license can be negotiated or a startup launched. An overarching goal of the program is to foster research and development work likely leading to commercially relevant translational technologies within a three- to five-year horizon. Because the goals of all Coulter projects are to reduce market risk, all proposals are expected to reflect genuine business input, and all projects must include a "business advisor" as an important member of the decision-making team.
The pre-proposal deadline for the awards is February 28, 2019.
