I-Corps Program at the UMCCTS
2019 course schedule to be announced.
Does your latest discovery have commercial value? Would a potential "customer" of your research welcome your technology, protocol, or intervention?
The I-Corps Program at the UMCCTS, a joint MassTERi/UMass Center for Clinical and Translational Science (UMCCTS) initiative, is designed to support the translation of biomedical research by providing early-stage education and strategic guidance to faculty, staff and students during the ideation phase of technology development.
Designed specifically for the biomedical researcher at UMass, it guides interdisciplinary teams through a hands-on process of understanding the market for their technology utilizing a proven customer discovery methodology.
This short course is a pre-cursor to a selective and intense set of courses run by the NIH and NSF and known as I-Corps. The I-Corps Program at the UMCCTS is designed to give teams a feeling if they and their opportunity are ready to apply for the national classes held by NIH and NSF. This short course maintains the intensity of the full I-Corps program but limits the time commitment.
Registration is a pre-requisite. Please read and understand the requirements of the Syllabus before applying.
