Support for Health Technologies and Life Science Commercialization

Commercializing health technologies and life science research often takes a different path than other types of technologies. Depending on your product, you might face pre-clinical and clinical trials, FDA regulations, a specialized approach to product development--and even marketing. This page identifies health commercialization resources that are available to you in addition to the standard resources available to students and to faculty or personnel.
