The University of Louisville is full of innovative researchers whose bold product ideas could disrupt whole markets, industries and sectors. By translating their work in the lab to commercialization, they could make the world a better place.
UofL supports this research with training and funding via a suite of prestigious grant-backed translational programs we've dubbed the "superfecta."
These programs are:
- AWARE:ACCESS, through the National Science Foundation;
- Innovation Corps (I-Corps.), through the National Science Foundation;
- ExCITE, through the National Institutes of Health Research Evaluation and Commercialization Hub (REACH);
- And Coulter Translational Research Partnership grants.
UofL is one of only a handful of universities in the country to receive each of these innovation-associated awards to support the translation of research into viable commercial products. And UofL is the only one to receive all of them.
The programs support researchers working to move their technology into the marketplace by providing infrastructure, advice, resources, networking opportunities, training and modest funding.
Given their shared goals, these programs work together to establish UofL as a world leader in innovation.
