Dr. Mladen Vidovich was awarded the Chancellor’s Translational Research Initiative Award!

Eleven projects with high commercialization potential were selected for 2022 CTRI Awards.

UIC Innovation awarded $275,000 to help UIC researchers prove the viability of their ideas and advance their projects towards commercialization through the Chancellor’s Translational Research Initiative (CTRI). This year’s CTRI award recipients are developing emerging technologies to help diagnose and treat disease and advancing other life-saving discoveries.

Since its inception in 2018, the CTRI program has awarded $1.15 million to support translational research at UIC. The program provides up to $25,000 to help prepare early-stage projects for licensing and startup opportunities.

Congratulations Dr. Vidovich!
