UT Research Foundation Announces Maturation Fund Recipients for 2015

Detection of Autism Spectrum Disorder, insect-resistant crops, the ability to pinpoint radiation sources in real time, and improved treatment of age-related macular degeneration are among the recipients of this year’s maturation funding from the University of Tennessee Research Foundation. Technologies invented at the University of Tennessee, like the majority of university discoveries, typically require additional development to attract commercial interest. UTRF awards grants each year through its annual maturation funding program to help researchers advance new technologies on the path to market.
