CCMR collaborates with the Cornell University Center of Advanced Technology (CAT) to support entrepreneurial development for life scientists and biotechnology industries in New York State.
The Cornell CAT offers grants to Cornell faculty to support collaborative projects with New York State industry partners to advance an early stage life science technology, moving it closer to commercialization.
The CCMR will sponsor selected awarded CAT grants having materials-related needs including the development or use of materials in their biotechnology and medical applications or prototypes. The CCMR sponsorship will amount to $5,000 per project.
