The Columbia BioMedX program (formerly the Columbia-Coulter Translational Research Partnership) is a biomedical engineering technology accelerator that aims to catalyze the advancement of Columbia University technologies from the lab to the market. The program provides funding, education, resources, and mentorship to teams of clinicians, engineers, and scientists to develop solutions to unmet clinical needs, with the ultimate goal of bringing innovative research out of the lab to benefit society. Project support serves as a bridge to commercial investment, with awards granted to perform specific tasks needed to validate a commercial hypothesis (vs. a scientific hypothesis).
The Irving Institute Accelerate Program is a therapeutic development accelerator platform that plays a central role in translating the outstanding basic science discoveries at Columbia University into commercial therapeutics. Through our Translational Therapeutics (TRx) accelerator award, we focus on providing funding, education, partnership and mentorship to Columbia Investigators, with a goal of advancing novel therapies from the lab towards the clinic. Advice and project guidance will be provided by a steering committee of academic and industry experts in the field of drug development.
Accelerating Cancer Therapeutics (ACT) is a therapeutic development accelerator program focused on providing funding, education, partnership, and mentorship to Columbia Investigators, with a goal of advancing novel cancer therapies from the lab towards the clinic. Advice and project guidance will be provided by a steering committee of academic and industry experts in the field of drug development.
