The Cohen Translational Engineering fund, available to Whiting School of Engineering faculty and made possible by a generous commitment from Neil Cohen ’83 and his wife, Sherry, is aimed at providing faculty with the critical early funding needed to focus on the first steps of translation.

It will underwrite the cost of two to three months of expenses. The fund supports the initial stage of innovation that moves research out of the laboratory, including the development of new WSE patents, and a range of critical needs—from materials and supplies to graduate student stipends and tuition.

Size: $20,000 – $40,000

Length of Project: Up to four months

Application Deadline: Annually

Eligibility: Faculty members from the Whiting School of Engineering with pre-company technology
