Stanford-Coulter Translational Research Grants

  • Establishing innovative multi-disciplinary partnerships
  • Fostering new technologies
  • Moving medicine forward

Stanford University has been selected as a partner by the Wallace H. Coulter Foundation, which supports collaborative translational research projects through an award to Bioengineering, one of nine such awards nationwide.

The Stanford-Coulter Translational Research Grants Program awards $800,000 a year to Bioengineering faculty members and their clinician researcher collaborators from the School of Medicine. Together, these teams of co-investigators work to develop new technologies that address unmet clinical needs, improve health care and lead to commercially available products.

Stanford University brings together top-notch clinical research and a tradition of innovation on its campus in the heart of Silicon Valley, the technology capital of the world. This unique position, along with support from the Coulter foundation, will allow awardees to quickly and expertly meet the challenges and needs facing medicine today.
