It hasn’t been lost on us that some of Delaware’s most impactful startups are meds-focused — two of the 10 startups on our 2019 Delaware realLIST are for medical devices designed by entrepreneurs from the University of Delaware.
So this news from UDaily makes perfect sense: UD is joining DRIVEN, one of four accelerator hubs across the country funded by the National Institute of General Medical Sciences.
The UD component of DRIVEN is being led by principal investigator Julius Korley, director of entrepreneurship and strategic partnerships for the College of Engineering and CEO of Affinity Therapeutics; Steven Stanhope, principal investigator of Delaware Idea Network of Biomedical Research Excellence (INBRE) and associate vice president for research; and Michael Bowman, associate director of the Office of Economic Innovation and Partnerships (OEIP).
“This Regional Accelerator Hub grant will focus on turning scientific discoveries into jobs and new small businesses in Delaware and products that reduce the cost and improve the quality of healthcare,” said Stanhope.
UD joins nine other organizations, all based in New England: Brown University, Dartmouth College, Celdara Medical, University of Vermont, University of New Hampshire, University of Rhode Island, Maine Medical Center, Mount Desert Island Biological Laboratory and Simbex.
