CIMIT Facilitation Leaders

The CIMIT community relies on the skills and expertise of many. Supporting CIMIT's novel approach to translational research is a team of commercialization and business experts who are the full-time CIMIT Facilitators.

Entrepreneurial by nature, CIMIT Facilitators are cross-trained in multiple disciplines.  All are experienced in crossing organizational boundaries. Each has achieved significant career success before joining CIMIT. Facilitation services help researchers overcome many of the barriers to successful innovation, including managing regulatory issues, developing prototypes, securing second and third round funding through grant writing (SBIR, STTR and foundations), seeking out potential collaborators, making connections with industry, addressing intellectual property issues, and more.
