is a Medical Device Innovation Hub between UMass Lowell and UMass
Worcester. M2D2 has a history of successfully helping entrepreneurs
submit and receive SBIR and STTR grant
funds from NIH. Come learn about SBIR and STTR grant opportunities
from NIH for medical device development and learn about the things you

The session will feature Dr. Natalie Rudolph, from Rudolph Biomedical Consulting as a distinguished speaker.
Rudolph's familiarity with both corporate and academic research culture
draws on more than 24 years of experience in the biotech and biomedical
industries. She held scientific
and management positions at two start-up biotechnology companies, where
she helped to develop and support three lines of biomedical assay
reagents, managed an intellectual property portfolio, and coordinated
technology licenses and extramural research collaborations.
For the last 17 years, she has worked with small companies and research
institutions to develop R&D project strategies and fund them
through non-dilutive grants and contracts.
