Active Projects for Partnering

The Division of Translational Research funds programs to support new technology development and treatments for neurological disorders and prepares them for investor funding and corporate partnerships. We provide critical path funding and research resources for biotechnology companies and university42% funding to therapeutic small molecules, 21% to therapeutic/prevention devices, 17% to therapeutic biologics, 10% to diagnostic devices, 9% to research tools, 1% to biomarkers researchers to advance early-stage neurological technologies, devices, and therapeutic programs to industry adoption (i.e., investor funding and corporate partnerships). In the last fiscal year, our division funded research projects covering a wide range of modalities (see chart).

Please find below a list of active projects that would welcome new partners.
