genomicsThe Innovative Genomics Initiative (IGI) is currently soliciting applications for its new Entrepreneurial Fellows Program at UC Berkeley. Designed to catalyze the translation and commercialization of innovative research discoveries for practical benefit, this new program builds strong support networks in which accomplished, entrepreneurial-minded researchers are enabled to make substantial contributions to the biotech economy, and ultimately introduce breakthrough discoveries to the market.

In support of innovative research that holds commercial promise, the IGI Entrepreneurial Fellows Program will provide research support (up to $250K/year for a maximum of two years) to a promising entrepreneurial researcher to pursue an exciting new project in the field of genomic engineering, and to help translate their discoveries into practical solutions that contribute directly to the biotechnology investment space.

The application deadline is on October 31, 2016, 12 pm PDT. For more information See the IGI website.
