In spite of the impact of COVID-19 on operations, University researchers and faculty have continued to innovate and advance promising solutions to improve human health, and ODAT remains committed to supporting their work. ODAT has issued thirteen new awards across its various funding programs since January 2020, ranging from pharmaceuticals to global health innovations.
Research is the path forward in this global pandemic, and CTSI, like organizations around the world, is committed to accelerating these discoveries.
CTSI’s Office of Discovery and Translation issues the 7th Translational Product Development Fund RFA funding cycle to support projects that advance research discoveries towards commercializable products. Apply now for support for projects on the path to form a start-up or license agreement, and focused on product development.
CTSI’s Office of Discovery and Translation (ODAT) has released a special Request for Applications (RFA) to advance the development of promising early-stage therapeutics. The intention of funding is to better position these projects to be competitive for follow-on funding through other internal or external funding programs and for successful commercialization. Learn more and apply.
Through a targeted funding opportunity, the CTSI’s Office of Discovery and Translation has selected four UMN projects to receive funding and guidance. Congratulations to the awardees!
Nearly 80 technology innovators, clinicians, investors, academics and members of the medical device industry gathered in April to better understand academic-industry relationship barriers and catalysts for innovation during the fifth annual Pediatric Device Breakthrough Collaborative event.
A project that was initially funded through the Pediatric Device Innovation Consortium’s Community Discovery Program for Child Health Innovation, which is managed by CTSI’s Office of Discovery and Translation, was featured in the Business section of the Sunday, March 31 Star Tribune.
A new CTSI funding opportunity is available for University of Minnesota researchers to support the development of innovations that address challenges faced by family and unpaid/informal caregivers.
A sixth cycle of funding is available through a collaboration between CTSI and the Mayo Clinic's Center for Clinical and Translational Science, and in conjunction with the Minnesota Partnership for Biotechnology and Medical Genomics for projects that have the potential to be commercialized through the formation of a start-up company or execution of a license agreement with an established commercial entity.
Three research projects have been selected to each receive $50,000 in initial project funding and support through CTSI's Translational Product Development Fund (TPDF) to advance along the translational development pathway toward the formation of a start-up company or execution of a license agreement.
