We are extremely pleased to announce this year's newly funded projects in the Columbia Biomedical Technology Accelerator portfolio.
Funds are awarded to perform a "killer experiment", that is, an experiment that will substantially remove risk and leave no doubt that the product will be an improvement over the status quo.
