2017 AWARD RECIPIENTS

News and Events

We are extremely pleased to announce newly funded projects in the Columbia Biomedical Accelerator portfolio.

Over $680,000 has been awarded to this year’s most promising project teams to catalyze the movement of biomedical innovations into products that can improve patient care.

Project support is expected to serve as a bridge to commercial investment, with awards granted to perform specific tasks needed to validate a commercial hypothesis (vs. a scientific hypothesis).

The 2017 winning project teams are working to address a wide range of unmet clinical needs, from an innovative wound care product aimed at improving quality of life for those with fragile skin disorders, to drugs to prevent the development of stress-induced psychiatric disorders, to a test to evaluate patient-specific drug response to guide chemotherapeutic treatment.

CONGRATULATIONS to this year's award recipients!
