TEDCO - Maryland Stem Cell Research Fund (MSCRF)
01/14/21 5:00 PM
Grants to Maryland companies to move cell-related technologies from universities to the commercial sector. Applicants are required to register in the online application portal prior to submitting a proposal. Funding is intended to support projects of both start-ups and established companies that seek to commercialize human stem cell technologies through market assessment, technology validation, and the creation of university start-up companies.
The Maryland Stem Cell Research Fund (MSCRF) Commercialization Program was created to foster the transition of promising technologies having significant commercial potential from Universities, where they were discovered, to the commercial sector, where they can be developed into products and services that meet identified market needs. Specifically, it is the intent of the Commercialization Program to foster the commercialization of such technologies through technology validation, market assessment, and the creation of University start-up companies in Maryland. A “University Start-up” is a company reliant on a technology licensed from a University for commencement of its operations.
Commercialization: Early-stage Development: “Early-stage Development” includes corporate product development in preparation for a product launch or the advancement of a product technology to achieve a commercial milestone that significantly increases the company’s value and better positions the company for follow-on investment.
Up to 10% of Commercialization awards may be used by Start-up Companies for overhead costs, provided, however, that not more than 50% of such overhead costs (i.e., 5% of the award amount) may be used to pay the University for patent or licensing costs. Any domestic travel expenses must be detailed and justified, and included as part of the 10% overhead portion of the budget.
GrantWatch ID#: 187322
Commercialization awards are capped at $270,000.
Commercialization projects, including all subcontracts, must be completed within 12 months of the date of the award. Because the nature and scope of the proposed research will vary from Application to Application, the duration of Awards may also vary. Earliest Anticipated Start Date: June 2021.
