'Math Meets Bio’ Columbia-AlleyCorp Collaboration
The 'Math Meets Bio’ Columbia-AlleyCorp Collaboration aims to accelerate the transition of innovative technologies for the lab to market and stimulate start-up activity to support the New York Life Science-Tech ecosystem at the intersection of mathematics and biology.
Areas of Interest:
Technologies at the intersection of mathematics and biology, including but not limited to:
- Computational Biology
- Enabling Technologies for Drug Discovery
- Tools and Algorithms to Support Advancement of Precision Medicine
- Operational Tools to Support R&D Infrastructure
To be eligible for participation and funding, at least one team member must have a full-time faculty appointment at a Math Meets Bio member institution, and the project must be based substantially upon intellectual property owned by the faculty member’s institution.
Current Math Meets Bio Alliance Members:
- Columbia University
- Albert Einstein College of Medicine
- Weill Cornell Medicine
- Mount Sinai School of Medicine
- New York University
Projects selected by AlleyCorp will receive support in terms of funding, mentorship from experienced entrepreneurs, curriculum, and a community of practice. AlleyCorp will provide a minimum commitment of $50,000 in direct funding, plus applicable indirect costs, where applicants should submit a reasonable budget to meet proof-of-concept milestones.
Review Process and Selection of Final Award Recipients:
AlleyCorp will review Pre-Proposals and make recommendations as to which projects should be invited to submit a Full Proposal and develop a Pitch Presentation. Selected Pre-Proposals will be invited to attend educational programming facilitated by Columbia Technology Ventures. Full Proposals and Pitch Presentations will be reviewed by a committee to make final funding decisions.
