The Maryland Industrial Partnerships (MIPS) program announces that it is providing matching grants for 15 technology product development projects in Maryland. 

The projects, averaging $90,000 in value, each feature a collaboration between University System of Maryland faculty members and Maryland-based companies. Projects are jointly funded by both MIPS and participating companies. All funding goes to the university research.

Phase 1 (new projects) include:

Saeedi and Associate Professor Lisa Schocket, Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences, University of Maryland, Baltimore: conducting equivalence and usability studies for the company’s wearable, remote optical coherence tomography (OCT) device, which enables clinicians to monitor ocular and brain disease inside and outside of the clinic, potentially leading to earlier detection and treatment of disease and improved patient care.
