Video: Funding your commercializaton project through a corporate partnership

If you missed the C4C talk in December by UW Professor Daniel Chiu, on funding a start-up through investment by a corporate partners, we’ve created a 10-minute video synopsis that you can view here. This talk is part of the C4C’s lecture series featuring UW Presidential Entrepreneurial Faculty Fellows.

Daniel T. Chiu is the A. Bruce Montgomery Professor of Chemistry, Endowed Professor of Analytical Chemistry, and Professor of Bioengineering. Chiu is a member of the Center for Nanotechnology and the Neurobiology and Behavior Program. He is also a member of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center’s Cancer Consortium. Daniel’s research activity is focused on the development of new tools that combine ultrasensitive laser-based detection and manipulation methodologies with micro- and nano-fabrication techniques for interfacing with biological systems at the nanometer scale, and on applying these new techniques for addressing biological problems and towards understanding biological complexity. Daniel played a part in founding MiCareo, which currently is developing a device to detect and isolate circulating tumor cells in blood.

The UW Presidential Entrepreneurial Faculty Fellows Lecture Series is designed to inspire UW researchers to pursue commercialization of their innovations by showcasing UW Faculty who have succeeded in translating their research into products and therapies, initiated groundbreaking programs for translation, or established model collaborations with industry.
