The Story

Improved ceramics manufacturing, breakthrough medical screening tests and a more convenient way to detect nuclear particles earned funding from the latest round of a Florida State University program that helps researchers bring their work to the marketplace.

FSU’s Office of the Vice President for Research awarded more than $167,000 to faculty members to continue research projects that could become commercial ventures as part of the Spring 2022 GAP Commercialization Investment Program. The university has awarded $3.5 million in funding and signed 20 license agreements for technologies developed through the program since its inception in 2006.

“By developing projects with commercial potential, FSU faculty can broaden the impact of their research,” said Interim Vice President for Research Mark Riley. “GAP offers researchers additional support as they partner with businesses and move their work into the marketplace.”
