2020-2021 Columbia Life Science Accelerators Announce Pilot Grant Awardees
July 01, 2021
Twelve winning research teams led by Columbia University faculty, across diverse disciplines, have received a Columbia Life Science Accelerator pilot grant for their creative and inventive lab-to-market projects. Award recipients, representing areas of expertise from bioengineering to mechanical engineering and genetics to systems biology, are each focusing on research or inventions that are on a path to commercialization or the clinic via novel therapeutics discovery or technologies that aim to change the way patients are being treated or diagnosed.
The recipients were selected for their potential to translate their research from the lab to commercial market, the scientific novelty and clinical merit of the project, and the feasibility of the proposed work. The teams this year share a total of $780,500 in pilot funding.
