Entrepreneurial Funding Announcement
The President’s Translational and Entrepreneurial Research Fund (PTEF) is sponsored by the Office of the President in partnership with the Office of the Vice President and the Office of Technology Commercialization at the Health Science Center to provide early stage seed funds for applied research. The PTEF is intended to provide funding for projects that have a high probability of being commercialized but are unlikely to do so without gap funding. Proposals are sought from investigators interested in developing their ideas into biomedical products (therapeutics, biologics, devices, software, etc.). Visit our Funding Page for more information.
