  1. Center for Technology & Venture Commercialization Announces Fall 2018 Seed Fund Recipients

 Link to TVC article

The University of Utah’s Center for Technology & Venture Commercialization has announced the recipients of its second round of seed funding. Awardees include an LED facial-recognition camera for mobile phones, a catheter-mounted microscope that helps diagnose cardiac disease and a high-voltage lithium battery that maintains consistent energy intensity.

TVC formed the seed fund in early 2018 to support early-stage technologies being developed by university faculty. “Our seed fund provides crucial financing for innovations that show promise but are not mature enough to attract outside investment,” said TVC Executive Director Keith Marmer. “Early stage funding is one example of our commitment to establishing long-term partnerships with our faculty inventors.”

Of 27 technologies submitted, six were funded. The applicants were evaluated on their proposed commercialization strategies, market differentiation, intellectual property status and plans for achieving developmental milestones, among other criteria.

“TVC helped us identify a market and develop a roadmap for commercialization, which has allowed me to narrow my research and development focus,” said Rajesh Menon, associate professor of electrical and computer engineering and prolific inventor. “And the seed funding will provide enough runway to develop a working prototype to present to potential licensees.”

Each awardee will be paired with a TVC executive in residence, who will help the inventor draft an implementation plan. Next steps may include forming a startup, assembling an executive team, developing a marketing plan and identifying a licensing partner.

Following are the 2018 TVC Seed Fund grantees:

  • UU 3-D Metrology Tool: A device that optically measures the absolute 3D position of an object.
  • Novel Phase Optics: A three-dimensional camera and mobile phone facial-recognition LED camera that employ flat-lens technology.
  • Chemically Removable Cleavable Linker: A device that provides controlled delivery of chemotherapeutics.
  • Advanced Halloysite Nano-tube Solid Polymer Electrolyte for Lithium-Sulfur Battery: A high-voltage lithium battery that remains stable without solvents.
  • Thermoelectric Aerospace Power Generation Module: A high-efficiency, ultra-lightweight thermoelectric modules for aerospace applications.
  • Catheterized Confocal Microscope: A microscopic imaging tool that can diagnose cardiac disease.

 6. Corporate and Foundation Funding Opportunities

Laura and John Arnold Foundation

LOI Deadline: Nov. 5, 2018

The Laura and John Arnold Foundation (LJAF) is committed to leveraging the power of data, research, and innovation to improve community safety by reducing crime, increasing police effectiveness, and working to ensure that laws are enforced in a fair and equitable way.

LJAF is committed to working with jurisdictions to evaluate interventions that leverage partnerships between police, fire departments, and EMS/EMTs to divert individuals who are homeless or who experience mental illness and/or SUDs—with a particular attention to those with opioid use disorder (OUD)—to evidence-based treatment and services. We are specifically interested in approaches that: (1) seek to improve emergency responses for individuals in moments of crisis, (2) provide immediate post- crisis alternatives to arrest or unnecessary hospitalization, and (3) connect individuals with evidence- based treatment programs and services.

  • Emergency Response: We seek proposals to evaluate programs that aim to increase the capacity of police, fire, or EMS/EMTs to recognize signs of mental illness and/or substance misuse, safely de-escalate and stabilize emergency situations, and maximize diversion to treatment and services.
  • Post-Crisis Stabilization: Many communities have redesigned or are in the process of redesigning their crisis response system to include alternatives to jails or emergency rooms for people experiencing a mental health or substance induced crisis, with the goal of transitioning these individuals to targeted long-term treatment and services.
  • Treatment Programs and Services: We would like to continue to build the evidence base for treatment programs and services—for individuals with mental illness, substance use disorders, and/or who are homeless—that reduce unnecessary encounters with the criminal justice and emergency response systems, improve individual outcomes, and generate public cost savings.

For more information please see the attached RFP. If you are interesting in applying please contact Chris Ostrander.

Doris Duke Charitable Trust

Nov. 28, 2018

The 2019 CSDA competition is now open and accepting pre-proposals. See the Request for Applications document for information on how to apply. The deadline to submit pre-proposals is Nov. 28, 2018 at 3 p.m. ET.

Purpose

The Doris Duke Clinical Scientist Development Award provides grants to early-career physician scientists to facilitate their transition to independent clinical research careers.

Rationale & History

The transition to an independent research career is often more difficult for physician scientists than it is for other researchers, as these individuals must balance the demands of both seeing patients and conducting research. DDCF’s Medical Research Program created the Clinical Scientist Development Award to provide mentored research funding to early-career physician-scientist faculty to enable their transition to independent and successful research careers.

In 2018, the Medical Research Program awarded 18 grants to investigators working in a broad range of disease areas.

Since the beginning of the program in 1998, the foundation has awarded 304 Clinical Scientist Development Awards totaling over $136 million.

Award Details 

The Clinical Scientist Development Award consists of $150,000 annual direct costs plus $15,000 (10 percent) annual indirect costs for three years. The priority of the CSDA program is to fund outstanding individuals with potential for clinical research careers, whose projects will address highly significant research questions and lead to career advancement. DDCF does not have funding priorities based on disease area or research type.

In keeping with the wishes expressed in Doris Duke’s will, experiments that use animals or primary tissues derived from animals will not be supported by this program.

Energy Resource Centers: Convergent Research and Innovation through Inclusive Partnerships and Workforce Development
LOI Deadline: Nov. 30, 2018

NSF expects to make four new ERC awards in the summer of 2020, for an initial lifespan of five years. Full proposals may be submitted only by invitation and only by the lead university designated in the preliminary proposal.

The goal of the ERC program has traditionally been to integrate engineering research and education with technological innovation to transform and improve national prosperity, health, and security. Building upon this tradition, NSF is interested in supporting ERCs to develop and advance engineered systems that will have a high societal impact. The approach resonates with NSF’s emphasis on Convergent Research, one of NSF’s 10 Big Ideas for future investment, as announced in May 2016. The complexity of convergent endeavors underscores the importance of purposeful team formation, including effective leadership/management, and the development and nurturing of stakeholder communities.

Each proposed ERC must be multi-institutional, with a lead university and additional domestic university core partners. At least one of the institutions (lead or partner) must be a university that serves populations of traditionally underrepresented students interested in STEM.

The NSF ERC team plan to broadcast a webinar in the coming weeks (date TBD). Questions should be submitted in advance of the webinar to nsferc@nsf.gov

U of U faculty interested in developing a proposal may seek support from the Research Development Office.
