Medical Device Innovations Program

To UMass Medical School and UMass Lowell Faculty, Staff, and Students with an interest in medical device innovation.

MDIP

The UMass Center for Clinical and Translational Science (UMCCTS), Office of Innovation and Business Development (OIBD), and the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research and Innovation (OVCRI) are pleased to support the Medical Device Innovations Program (MDIP). This program supports projects that are inter-campus in orientation and directed toward creating a transdisciplinary team to solve a pressing clinical or health care need with a medical device. By providing seed funding to outstanding faculty members, this fund facilitates the development of faculty-to-faculty networks within the University system, thereby leveraging the considerable expertise and resources that exist on the individual campuses. It is assumed that successful projects will attract additional funding from extramural sources.

This program is currently closed.
