The focus of OCTRI’s Biomedical Innovation Program (BIP) is bench-to-bedside device, diagnostic, and software development. Formed in partnership with Technology Transfer and Business Development (TTBD) in 2012, the BIP has funded a total of 12 projects, led by a diverse group of principal investigators, including clinicians, scientists, and bioengineers. Several of these projects have achieved proof of concept as a result of BIP funding and are being actively marketed by TTBD for licensing agreements with biomedical corporations. Others have formed the basis for start-up companies. The BIP’s objective is to improve human health by moving innovative technologies from academia to the marketplace.
