Medical test and drug development technologies from UW Bioengineering have spun out into start-ups Nexgenia and Nanosurface Biomedical, with Coulter's help.
The University of Washington Coulter Translational Research Partnership (TRP) Program is pleased to announce the 2015-2016 awardees of Coulter funding to support commercialization of medical research. Five teams of university faculty won $100,000 – $150,000 grants in June 2015.
Kassandra Thomson, Ph.D. has been appointed Interim Director of the W. H. Coulter Foundation Translational Research Partnership (TRP) Program. The Coulter TRP program was previously led by Kathie Jordan, PhD, who became the Coulter Program Director at Drexel University beginning in April 2015.
This May marks the 10th anniversary of the UW’s Coulter Translational Research Partnership in Biomedical Engineering, which has helped propel dozens of UW inventions from the lab toward clinical use. We profile one of Coulter’s recent successes: a platform for growing cardiac cells for drug toxicity testing. Researchers in BioE’s Deok-Ho Kim’s lab developed the technology, which was recently spun out to the start-up NanoSurface Biomedical.
