The Michigan Translational Research and Commercialization for Life Sciences Innovation Hub is a statewide program supporting translational research projects in life sciences with high commercial potential, with the ultimate goal of positively impacting human health. Innovators from all schools at the University of Michigan, other institutions of higher education, non-profit research centers, and hospital systems across Michigan are eligible to submit projects for funding consideration.
The program offers early-stage funding opportunities through Kickstart, and MTRAC is our funding program for mid-stage commercialization projects. MTRAC for Life Sciences Innovation Hub/MTRAC/Kickstart have awarded millions of dollars in funding over the past four years.
