Tech Development Funds

Through its technology development efforts, the NTI has created new intellectual property, fostered a vibrant environment for new ventures and increased the marketing success of the region both nationally and internationally.

Core Grants

The NTI’s core research projects are designed to be multi-investigator, multi-institutional collaborations. In order to be considered as a core project, research must contribute to new IP, and the technology developed must have significant potential for commercialization and be attractive to industry for corporate sponsorship or licensing.  All team members who receive funds must have Principal Investigator status at an NTI-affiliated institution.

In 2007, the NTI funded two core projects focusing on biosensors and bioprobes.
