  • Open to UMB inventors interested in working to develop a technology for future commercialization.
  • Technologies may be at any stage of development.
  • Proposed technologies should solve a clearly identified healthcare problem. They may be part of a larger, more complex technology as long as designing, building, and testing furthers development in the allotted timeline.
