It’s not often that a service-oriented unit is able to celebrate audacious achievement, but Vanderbilt’s Center for Technology Transfer and Commercialization is doing just that. The Center ended fiscal year 2014 with 101 transactions with industry partners, nearly 20 more than the record total, which was set in fiscal year 2013.
The 2014 Global Action Challenge, a million-dollar competition seeking breakthrough technologies, startups, or prototypes that could have significant impact in the world's health and food sectors, is now accepting applications. Applications are due Aug. 29, 2014.
Vanderbilt University School of Medicine's Department of Medicine hosted a Mix and Mingle Poster Session last night. CTTC attended and enjoyed conversations with a number of investigators about current research efforts - from obesity-related illness to HIV and cancer studies.
Vanderbilt University’s entrepreneurial community will have greater access to Jumpstart Foundry’s (JSF) proven program for education, mentorship and networking through a new collaboration with Vanderbilt’s Center for Technology Transfer and Commercialization (CTTC).
One of the leading academic research institutions in the U.S., Vanderbilt is known for its cutting-edge research in areas like cancer, space and defense, mechanical and biomedical engineering, and education, to name a few. But there is another area of research happening inside our walls that could have global impact.
After a night of stellar commercialization plan presentations, the title of 2014 Tech Venture Challenge champs goes to Team OMEDS. The student team consisted of Diksyha Bastakoty, Barbara Natalizio, Meghan McGill, Miroslav Remec, and Ryad Ceddia.
Vanderbilt’s Team Filtergraph is headed to Michigan to participate in the National Science Foundation Innovation Corps Program. Filtergraph is a dynamic, web-based portal that allows users to sort and manage large data sets. Key features include:
In the Fall of 2011, a team of engineers and surgeons came together to formalize collaborative efforts between their fields, to inspire innovative thinking in surgery and healthcare, and to clear the roadblocks for future colleagues. In a little more than two years, that team has done just that, and more.
The month of March brought one new patent to Vanderbilt technology, the immunoisolation patch system for cellular transplantation developed by Taylor Wang, emeritus professor of engineering. This becomes the ninth issued patent for Vanderbilt technologies throughout the first quarter of 2014.
Nine Vanderbilt students will pitch their startup ideas before a panel of judges, Wednesday, April 9. The students were selected through Flash Pitch '14, a student startup idea challenge hosted by CTTC. The students selected to pitch are:
The primary role of CTTC is to transfer innovative products and technology out of the university. We want the public to benefit from the brilliant work happening inside Vanderbilt's labs and research centers.
The Adventures of Jasper Woodbury is a software-based learning tool that helpsstudents conquer mathematical problem solving skills through project-based learning -- a teaching method that asks students to identify and solve real-world problems. The Jasper series was developed by researchers at Vanderbilt University Peabody College of Education and Human Development and is the culmination of several years of effort to create enriched learning environments that foster the development of mathematics problem-solving skills.
