Latest UW medical startups and innovations featured in local media

The University of Washington’s Center for Commercialization (C4C) recently hosted an inter-active tour for journalists at its New Ventures Facility, where the media got a first-hand look at the latest technologies moving from lab to market.

KING 5 Healthlink’s Jean Enersen reports:

You could call it an adult science fair: University of Washington entrepreneurs and students displayed new ways to reboot damaged hearts, save lives in the E.R. and prevent severe reactions to gluten.

The Puget Sound Business Journal reports:

University of Washington is home to researchers investigating the latest technologies and drug candidates for a healthier world. The challenge is getting those big ideas out of the lab and into the marketplace.

UW’s Center for Commercialization is the incubator trying to make that happen. C4C was created to help the university’s researchers get their products on the market.
