By Staff

The University of Colorado Technology Transfer Office invites all bioscience faculty to submit proposals for the Colorado Bioscience Discovery and Evaluation Grant (BDEG) program.

CU researchers are eligible for awards worth $50,000 to $200,000 through the 2009 round of BDEG grants for commercial, proof-of-concept work, the TTO announced in its September newsletter.

Eligible fields include therapeutics/vaccines, diagnostics, medical devices and platform technologies. TTO must receive pre-proposal summaries by Sept. 25; an invention disclosure for technology must be on file with TTO by the same date.

The deadline to submit final written applications to TTO is Oct. 2.

Faculty may download online application guidelines and forms, and may direct questions to Rick Silva at 303-724-0222 (UC Denver) or Kate Tallman at 303-492-5732 (CU-Boulder and UCCS).
