Von Liebig Center awards funding to six projects to commercialize UCSD faculty research

San Diego, July 18, 2003 -- The William J. von Liebig Center for Entrepreneurism and Technology Advancement has awarded $300,000 in "gap" funding to six projects led by faculty at the UCSD Jacobs School of Engineering. This third round of funding brings the total to 19 projects financed since the Center was set up in 2001 to provide funding to internal technology projects that have strong commercial potential, and to foster entrepreneurism education on the campus.

A record number of faculty -- 25 in all -- submitted full applications for project funding by the May deadline. "The strong response shows that the von Liebig Center and its support for technology commercialization has become an integral component of the Jacobs School," said Rick LeFaivre, Executive Director of the Center. "Although we could only make an additional six cash awards, our staff and consultants will now work with the other faculty to develop commercialization strategies for their technologies and, if possible, help them secure other types of funding for their projects."

Applicants went through a rigorous screening mechanism and their proposals were reviewed by an external committee of industry experts in the various disciplines.

Of the six grants, two each went to faculty in the Bioengineering and the Electrical and Computer Engineering departments, with one each in Structural Engineering, and in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering. The projects detailed below include inventions that range from a way to make quieter cooling fans on computers, ventilation units and the like, to a video-enabled wireless Walkie-Talkie, and a new method to help detect infectious agents in the event of a bioterrorist attack. "Our reviewers emphasized the quality of the proposals they saw in this solicitation," noted LeFaivre. "We want to thank everyone who participated in this program and we wish all of the applicants the best as they seek to commercialize their technologies."
