Guozhong Cao Named UW Entrepreneurial Faculty Fellow

Prof. Guozhong Cao has been a 2012 UW Presidential Entrepreneurial Faculty Fellow by UW President Michael Young.


The Presidential Entrepreneurial Faculty Fellows (EFF) program initiated in 2011 recognizes the University of Washington's most entrepreneurial faculty researchers. UW President Michael Young appoints to this prestigious group faculty members who have achieved success in translating their research into products and therapies, initiated groundbreaking programs for translation, or collaboration with industry.


In their two-year terms, the Fellows may serve as mentors to other UW faculty, researchers, and staff with entrepreneurial aspirations, and share their experiences with student and faculty groups at entrepreneurial events organized on campus. Fellows will also advise the UW Center for Commercialization on programs.


Said Vice Provost and Executive Director of the C4C Linden Rhoads, "The Entrepreneurial Fellows Program conveys the University's top leaders' commitment to increasing commercialization activity and embracing entrepreneurial efforts by our faculty. The program is one element of our campaign to foster an entrepreneurial culture across the University."
