Preparing Tomorrow’s Leaders
June 12, 2013
The Center for Biotechnology and Stony Brook University received two $25,000 grants towards their BioEntrepreneur-in-Residence (B-EIR) Program. The State University of New York and The Research Foundation for SUNY (RF), and the Suffolk County Economic Development Corporation each awarded $25,000 to further the pilot B-EIR program the Center has launched in order to increase the number, quality and success of new ventures formed to commercialize early-stage, promising biomedical technologies invented at Stony Brook University. This funding is in addition to the more than $500,000 already raised around the initiative.
