This program is designed to create and support ventures with diverse funding opportunities by operating through a public-private, multidisciplinary “incubator” based structure that promotes diverse, interdisciplinary interactions and partnerships between individuals and groups from the university, public, and corporate sectors.
Participation in this program is open to all individuals and
groups that have an interest in working on identified projects or
developing new ventures that are in line with the program’s
mission. Although we expect to have participation from healthcare
professionals and healthcare groups, the program also welcomes
participation from individuals and groups associated with the
social sciences, the physical sciences, and the humanities.
