Accessible and affordable care at heart of health-care technology grants
Date:9/8/2011

Five teams of scientists from multiple campuses of the University of California and a Southern California hospital have been awarded up to $100,000 each to commercialize their ideas for new, lower cost health care technologies that will address a long-standing need for more affordable and efficient chronic disease management and preventive health care, particularly in underserved communities. The commercialization grant program is led by the von Liebig Entrepreneurism Center at UC San Diego Jacobs School of Engineering.

Chosen from a field of 64 applicants from 10 different institutions in Southern California, the projects range from smart phone-based disease diagnostics and weight-loss management tools to a device that turns cell phones into microscopes. Selected university-based engineers, physicians and entrepreneurs will now work with von Liebig technology and business advisors on prototype development and testing, proof-of-concept studies. MBA students from the UC San Diego Rady School of Management will provide support to the innovator teams in the form of market research and competitive analysis.

The awards are part of the von Liebig Center's Southern California Healthcare Technology Acceleration Program, which nurtures and accelerates the commercialization of novel healthcare inventions developed within research institutes and universities in Southern California.

The program is sponsored by the California HealthCare Foundation, Booz Allen Hamilton, and the Pioneer Portfolio of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. A project's success will be determined by the ability to secure follow-on funding for further development after the initial grant period.

"The California HealthCare Foundation is eager to spark innovations that can reduce the costs of health care and expand access to services for the underserved," said Veenu Aulakh, a Senior Program Officer at the Oakland-based foundation. "Sometimes great concepts need
