The NIH Centers for Accelerated Innovation

GH - Empire Ballroom I

With extensive federal resources from the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute, three National Institutes of Health (NIH) Centers for Accelerated Innovations have been established to (1) develop an infrastructure that expands commercializable technologies for heart, lung, blood, and sleep disorders; (2) place these opportunities in the proper evaluative context through engagement, solicitation, and selection; (3) efficiently bring selected projects to an exit from the centers; and (4) provide education and mentoring for academic innovators to develop entrepreneurial skills. These centers are changing the culture of academic environments and relationships between the public and private sectors for the ultimate benefit of patients and society.

Mark Low, Managing Director, National Institutes of Health Center for Accelerated Innovations, Cleveland Clinic
