Brief Description

The MII program fosters the transition of promising technologies with significant commercial potential from the University to the commercial sector, where they can be developed into products and services that meet identified market needs. Specifically, MII supports technology validation, market assessment, and the creation of start-up companies.

UMB’s MII Site Miners are seasoned life science industry experts that guide UMB investigators through the MII process. Each of our site miners will discuss their area(s) or expertise and share their experiences submitting and winning MII awards.

UMB has a strong record of success winning MII awards; several recipients have received awards for both Phase I/II and Phase III support.
