MU celebrates $5 million partnership for advancing biomedical discoveries
Date:8/31/2012

From a tool for treating burn victims to a technique for detecting neurodevelopmental disorders, new products and services for patients are now being developed with support from the University of Missouri's Coulter Translational Partnership Program. Today, the program announced that it is awarding funding to five teams of physicians and engineers who are working together to improve health care.

The new funding is provided by a $5 million partnership between MU and the Wallace H. Coulter Foundation. The partnership establishes MU as one of 15 academic institutions in the country and the only university in Missouri selected to establish a Coulter Translational Partnership Program.

"MU and the Coulter Foundation share a common goal of turning discoveries made in laboratories into new products and services for patients," said MU Chancellor Brady Deaton. "Our investment in translational research involving physicians and engineers at MU builds on the university's substantial resources for advancing biomedical innovation."

MU's Coulter program is awarding funding to five projects that are using biomedical engineering solutions to meet the needs of patients. The projects selected in 2012 involve a total of 10 co-investigators from MU's School of Medicine and College of Engineering. Over the next four years, additional projects will be selected for funding.

"MU is home to a wealth of translational research opportunities waiting to be further developed," said Jinglu Tan, Coulter program principal investigator and James C. Dowell Professor and Chair of Biological Engineering at MU. "Each of the Coulter projects selected for funding demonstrated exceptional scientific merit
