Bioscience Innovation Fund: Applications Close on Oct. 18

October 08, 2019

Yale University, the University of Connecticut, and Quinnipiac University have joined forces with Connecticut Innovations and the Bioscience Innovation Fund to help you commercialize your biomedical technology innovation (medical devices, diagnostics and health information technology).

Our $1 million, two-year initiative provides up to $30,000 per project of much-needed gap funding to seedling companies or faculty and student groups associated with any Connecticut university.

Applications are accepted twice a year. The strongest proposals, as determined by a peer review committee, will receive up to $30,000 in funding.

If you’re part of an established company, student team or faculty associated with a Connecticut university, and you have a great idea in the area of medical devices, drug delivery, diagnostics, or health IT, take the first step to improving human health.
