I-Corps Program at the UMCCTS

Technology Management


Due to popular demand, the deadline date to apply for the Spring 2017 I-Corps Program at the UMCCTS has been extended to March 17, 2017.

The I-Corps Program at the UMCCTS, a joint MassTERi/UMass Center for Clinical and Translational Science (UMCCTS) initiative, is designed to support the translation of biomedical research by providing early-stage education and strategic guidance to faculty, staff and students during the ideation phase of technology development.

Designed specifically for the biomedical researcher at UMass, it guides interdisciplinary teams through a hands-on process of understanding the market for their technology utilizing a proven customer discovery methodology.

This short course is a pre-cursor to a selective and intense set of courses run by the NIH and NSF and known as I-Corps. The I-Corps Program at the UMCCTS is designed to give teams a feeling if they and their opportunity are ready to apply for the national classes held by NIH and NSF. This short course maintains the intensity of the full I-Corps program but limits the time commitment.
