The Maryland Industrial Partnerships program at the University of Maryland is awarding $4.7 million to researchers at Maryland universities “to help 16 local companies develop technology products.”

A program run out of the Maryland Technology Enterprise Institute at UMD’s school of engineering, MIPS is now in its 26th year “providing matching grants for technology product development projects that team Maryland companies with researchers in Maryland public universities” according to MDBizNews.

From the MDBizNews report:

The projects, which team companies with universities across the state, include gene-silencing for cancer treatment, a new cardiovascular diagnostic device, advanced chemical detection, distributed heating and cooling, fertilizers and soil amendments made from both fish waste and other mixtures, agricultural stormwater treatment [and more].

To find the full list of technology projects, head to MDBizNews.

According to a study commissioned by the MIPS and conducted by the Jacob France Institute at the University of Baltimore, “MIPS products generated over $3 billion in product sales and supported 3,615 ongoing jobs in Maryland in calendar 2011 alone.”
