The University of Washington Microfabrication Facility (MFF) is offering Microfabrication Commercialization Grants (MCG) to support fabrication expenses, including access fees and hourly machine rates, within the MFF. The MFF and the Washington Research Foundation (WRF) are partnering to help bridge the gap from academic or applied research to commercialization of microfabricated devices, microsystems, or microfabrication process/equipment technologies.
The mission of the Craig H. Neilsen Foundation is to improve the quality of life for those living with spinal cord injury (SCI) and to support scientific exploration for effective therapies and treatments leading to a cure. The foundation is currently inviting Letters of Intent for clinical and scientific research grants that address spinal cord injury. [Deadlines and Application Materials]
