UofL Coulter Translational Research Partnership

The mission of the Coulter Translational Partnership (CTP) in Bioengineering at the University of Louisville is to promote translation of research through successful collaboration between engineers and clinicians, supporting promising technologies. The Coulter Translational Partnership funds promising projects in order to move innovative technologies to clinical application through commercialization. The ultimate goal of this partnership is to concentrate on outcomes which will accelerate the introduction of new technologies to improve the treatment and diagnosis of disease or reduce healthcare costs.

In 2005 the Coulter Foundation created a pioneering program consisting of 10 universities, now known as TP1, to begin their commitment to translational research. The success of the first program was the basis for establishing a second.

The $5 Million grant program was awarded to the University of Louisville Department of Bioengineering in 2011 by the Wallace H. Coulter Foundation. The University was honored to receive the Coulter Translational Partnership Award which placed U of L in the "Sweet 16" of the US Institutions in the area of Translational Research.
