The Office of Biomedical Industry Collaborations manages a portfolio of programs that allow greater engagement between industry and researchers at University of Arizona Health Sciences. These programs provide mutual visibility into the collaboration opportunities possible between University of Arizona and companies in sectors aligned with our researh programs. Successful collaboration and a vibrant innovation ecosystem requires mutual understanding, trust, and many nodes of connectivity. These programs are designed to enable the math, Brownian motion, and knowledge spillover that will solidfy an increasingly active role of University of Arizona in the national innovation ecosystem.
These programs are all intended to acheive two aims:
- enhance the visibility of University of Arizona capabilities and strengths in local and national industry ecosystems
- enhance visibility for UAHS researchers into the the stated interests and current collabroation models of select industry participants
