About UC Discovery Grants
The Industry-University Cooperative Research Program (IUCRP) awards MICRO Grants and UC Discovery Grants in five fields of science and engineering. UC Discovery Grants form a 3-way partnership between UC, Industry Sponsors, and the State of California.
During the last half-century, molecular genetics revolutionized biomedical research and gave rise to the biotechnology industry. During the next half-century, the application of the quantitative sciences - mathematics, physics, chemistry and engineering - to biomedical research brings about a second revolution that promises to improve human health and create dynamic new technologies.
To catalyze these changes, the California Institute for Quantitative Biomedical Research (QB3), a cooperative effort among three campuses of the University of California and private industry, harnesses the quantitative sciences to integrate our understanding of biological systems at all levels of complexity - from atoms and protein molecules to cells, tissues, organs and the entire organism. This long-sought integration allows scientists to attack problems that have been simply unapproachable before, setting the stage for fundamental new discoveries, new products and new technologies for the benefit of human health.
The Center for BioEntrepreneurship has developed programs and activities that are creating the next generation of leaders in life science entrepreneurship and industry, and that weave the University community into the wider fabric of leading companies, financiers and professionals necessary for the successful migration of discoveries from the laboratory to commercialization for the benefit of the institution and society.
Agilent delivers innovative technologies, solutions and services to a wide range of customers in communications, electronics, life sciences and chemical analysis. The breadth and depth of our expertise enable us to offer solutions across our customers' entire product life cycle from research and development to manufacturing to installation and management.
