Awarded Projects

Technologies

The Stanford-Coulter Translational Research Grants Program has produced a number of technologies through the projects that have been awarded grants. The following technologies have been derived from Coulter projects and are available for licensing:

  • Phase-change nanoparticles for neuromodulation
  • Hydrogels to prevent scar tissue adhesion
  • Implant for improved treatment of early stage osteonecrosis of the hip
  • Optical bowtie filter for computed tomography
  • Method and appartus for radioablation of regular targets
  • Lympatic access platform
  • Hetero assembling, tunable and injectable hydrogels for cell encapsulation

Please see the Office of Technologies website's MedTech offerings for a list of all life science technologies currently available for licensing.
