UW Coulter Translational Research Partnership Program
The UW Coulter Translational Research Partnership program is an alliance between the School of Medicine and College of Engineering, with a dedicated focus on developing technologies that will save, extend and improve lives. The program is supported by a multi-year grant from the Wallace H. Coulter Foundation.
With a long history of translating research into products for medicine, in 2005, the University of Washington became one of 10 pioneering universities to receive the Coulter Translational Partnership Award in Biomedical Engineering. Based on the success of the first partnerships, in 2010, 6 additional universities were awarded Coulter Translational Partnerships. To meet our aggressive commercialization goals, the Coulter Program also partners with:
The Coulter Translational Research Partnership is proud to sponsor the Health Innovators Collaborative Seminar Series, a wonderful university-wide initiative that propels healthcare innovation among faculty, students, and industry. Our mission to save, extend and improve lives would not be possible without constant exchange of information and education, through programs like the Collaborative. As we continue to fund technologies at the intersection of medicine and engineering, we’re pleased to be a part of the conversation about the changing healthcare landscape.
