Translational Research Support (for Faculty)
Through direct, daily interaction with Duke University and Medical faculty, small and large businesses, and venture investors, the OLV builds relationships and agreements to translate academic discoveries into commercial products that benefit society, impact public health, and improve quality of life.
The Duke-Coulter Translational Partnership Grant Program accelerates the development of promising bioengineering research that addresses important unmet clinical needs and leads to improvement in commercial development and clinical practice.
DTMI seeks to improve individual and population health by catalyzing translation across the continuum of scientific discovery, clinical research, care delivery, and global health. DTMI provides multidisciplinary investigator teams with industrial-model project management, and easy access to emerging technologies and methodologies.
Collaborative Pilot Agreements provide funding up to $100,000 (direct costs only) to support collaborations between laboratory-based and clinical researchers to accelerate projects from preclinical to Phase 1 trials. These collaborative agreements will fund projects ready for early-stage clinical trials or sufficiently developed to begin first-in-human trials within three years of funding inception. Each agreement will be assigned a project manager to provide navigation and support to help investigators access required expertise, resources and services.
Access Derwent Innovations Index through Duke University Libraries. Derwent Innovations Index covers over 14.3 million basic inventions from 40 worldwide patent-issuing authorities with backfiles to 1963. The database facilitates rapid, precise patent searching and merges the value-added patent information from Derwent World Patents Index with the patent citation information from Derwent Patent Citation Index. It allows users to conduct powerful patent and citation searches of inventions in chemical, electrical, electronic, and mechanical engineering, and to use additional descriptive information and coding to quickly grasp a patent’s significance and its relationship to other patents.
