Three research projects have been named recipients of the 2020 Biomedical Innovation Program awards. The awards program is a collaboration of the Oregon Clinical and Translational Research Institute, OHSU Technology Transfer, and OHSU Collaborations & Entrepreneurship.
The awards provide funds, project management, and mentorship to facilitate the development of innovative technologies at OHSU and accelerate their translation to the marketplace.
This track of funding supports translational projects that develop new biomedical devices, diagnostics, and software.
