The Center for Advanced Technology in Big Data and Health Sciences (UB CAT) nurtures business partnerships by providing matching funds for applied university research and development support in big data and health sciences.
Sponsored by Empire State Development’s Division of Science, Technology and Innovation (NYSTAR), the UB Center for Advanced Technology in Big Data and Health Sciences (UB CAT) is one of 15 designated Centers in the state dedicated to leveraging university resources to drive company growth. UB’s CAT is specifically focused on the intersection of big data and health sciences, particularly as it relates to drug development, medical devices, diagnostic tools and healthcare IT.
The UB CAT provides eligible companies with project cost sharing grants to fund industry-university collaborations in big data and health sciences arenas. Through these cost sharing grants, NYS health sciences companies utilizing big data can leverage funding, access to expertise, equipment, and reduced rates on services, and supplies through UB to address challenges and achieve goals on the path to commercialization.
Eligible companies must be registered in NYS, have an office location in NYS, and have at least one full-time employee. Proposed projects must align with UB CAT’s technology focus area (big data and health sciences).
