Translational Research Grants

The University of Louisville offers many funding opportunities to help its researchers bridge the gap between lab and marketplace. This includes a suite of prestigious grant-backed translational programs, which we've dubbed the "superfecta."

UofL is one of only a handful of universities in the country to receive each of these innovation-associated awards to support the translation of research into viable commercial products. And we’re the only one to receive all of them.

The programs provide infrastructure, advice, resources, networking opportunities, training and funding. Given their shared goals, these programs work together to establish UofL as a world leader in innovation.


UofL has a suite of offices and experts to help its innovators translate their research from lab to marketplace. They can help secure intellectual property rights, offer advice, market technologies and more. Innovation & Technology Transfer, part of the Office of Research and Innovation, works with innovators to secure IP on their inventions and get them to market.
