Maryland Industrial Partnerships tech transfer program gives $3.8M to 17 projects

Maryland Industrial Partnerships celebrated 25 years in 2012.

A program run out of the University of Maryland, College Park, awarded $3.8 million to “17 teams of university researchers working with state companies on projects to bring technology products to market,” reports the Baltimore Business Journal.

The Maryland Industrial Partnerships program is contributing $1.5 million to the projects, while partnering companies, which will help the researchers commercialize the technology they’re working on, are contributing $2.3 million. That’s the embodiment of a tech transfer effort — commercialize and private university-based research.

  • ($224,800) J. Kristie Johnson, associate professor, department of pathology, and Baltimore-based InstantLabs Medical Diagnostics Corp.
  • ($136,899) Alex MacKerell, professor, school of pharmacy, and Baltimore-based SilcsBio LLC.
