• Coulter-funded projects require Co-PI collaborations between at least one faculty healthcare provider (physicians, nurses, or dentists) and at least one College of Engineering faculty member.
  • Only permanent, full-time faculty in the professorial ranks (assistant, associate, full or research) at the University of Michigan may apply. Coulter has also helped pair engineering professors and clinicians in the past, so compelling translational projects should be discussed with Coulter Program Management even if the entire team has not been assembled.
  • The translational research project must relate directly to the development of new products with applications in healthcare.
  • The objectives of the project should include milestones that provide technical and commercial de-risking to generate professional investor or licensee interest.
