tend, and improve patient lives. The Foundation's broad mandate addresses suffering from any disease or condition, in any size market, in any discipline, in any country around the world.

"This award is a testament to the national leadership of our Biomedical Engineering Department in Translational Biomedical Engineering Research," said Yannis C. Yortsos, Dean of the USC Viterbi School of Engineering. "The Program will contribute to solving pressing societal health issues. It also fits well with the strategic plan of our BME Department, the Viterbi School of Engineering and complements the University's vision to support interdisciplinary and translational research."

Dr. Norberto Grzywacz, Professor and Chair of the Viterbi School's Department of BME led the collaborative effort as its principal investigator (PI).  The co-PIs were Thomas A. Buchanan, M.D., Professor of Medicine, Obstetrics and Gynecology, Associate Dean of Clinical Research at the Keck School of Medicine, and Director of the CTSI, and Krisztina "Z" Holly, Vice Provost for Innovation and Executive Director of the USC Stevens Institute for Innovation. The team also included Dr. Richard Hull, Senior Director for New Ventures and Alliances at the USC Stevens Institute for Innovation.

"This program harnesses critical gap funding, expertise, and focus to move USC's breakthrough biomedical engineering ideas into positive societal impact," said Holly. "We are thrilled to be working with the Coulter Foundation; this partnership is a key new piece of our interdisciplinary approach to innovation here at USC."

Co-PI Buchanan adds, "This is an outstanding opportunity to create the new interdisciplinary research teams to develop new approaches to diagnose and treat human disease. CTSI was designed to do just that. We are both proud and excited to be part of the USC partnership that won this prestigious award."

The first co-Directors of the Program are Mr. Juan Felipe Va
