The Wallace H. Coulter Center (WHCC) at the University of Miami is focused on turning translational research in biomedical science and engineering into products by commercializing research projects that address an unmet clinical need and have market potential. We work with investigators as a team to help them carry the project from a translational stage to a tangible product that impacts public health. The success metrics for our center include either successful licensing to an established company or creation of new professionally managed and financed UM start-ups. Emphasis is placed on ability to secure follow-on funding and translate into a successful license or start-up in less than 3 years.
