UC San Diego faculty receive funding from von Liebig Center to commercialize academic research

San Diego, Monday, February 23, 2004 -- The William J. von Liebig Center for Entrepreneurism and Technology Advancement at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) has awarded $275,000 to six projects led by faculty members of the Jacobs School of Engineering. The projects range from bio-sensors to nano-photonics, and include technologies to create synthetic bone for use in dental implants or prosthetics; to put anti-virus and other Internet networking functions on auto-pilot; and to enable affordable, predictable and reliable wireless data services (details below).

This is the fourth round of so-called "gap" grants since the Center was set up to foster entrepreneurism education on the campus and to provide funding to internal technology projects that have strong commercial potential. The Center received 19 full applications. All of the applicants went through a rigorous screening mechanism and their proposals were reviewed by an external committee of industry experts. "This solicitation was extremely successful," said Joe Bear, executive director of the von Liebig Center. "All of the applications showed great promise, and while we were only able to make six cash awards, the von Liebig Center will now work with all applicants to develop commercialization strategies for their technologies, and if possible, help them secure other types of funding for their projects."

With the latest round, the von Liebig Center has awarded a total of more than $1.2 million in grants to 25 projects led by Jacobs School faculty.

Of the six new grants, two each went to faculty or researchers based in the Computer Science and Engineering, and Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering departments, and one each to professors in Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Bioengineering.
