UC Irvine Institute for Clinical and Translational Science is pleased to announce the 2013 ICTS Biumvirate Award Recipients

This program is a combined research endeavor with UC Irvine and the Long Beach VA. The selected awardees are science projects that, at its core, have a new device that is used in the promotion of human health, such as in the diagnosis or treatment of human disease. Of greatest interest were projects that have a device that is ready to undergo a new stage of development, e.g., from the lab to first time in humans, from pilot human studies to a formal clinical trial, or from clinical experience to commercial development. Congratulations to current award recipients.
