The Foundation for Health Advancement and Cooper University Health Care have announced that they will jointly develop opportunities to advance groundbreaking biomedical research and technology within the Cooper University Health Care system.
Dr. George Heinrich, Vice Chairman and CEO of the Foundation for Health Advancement, said: “We look forward to working with them to further advance health-related projects and businesses across the state.”
This new partnership allows clinicians, researchers, and other team members at Cooper University Health Care to apply for innovation grants awarded by the FHA. Cooper also has access to the Research/Community Health and Social Services Grant program awarded by the New Jersey Health Foundation, an FHA affiliate.
“The FHA is the funding pillar for the commercialization of health research and innovation for leading medical institutions throughout New Jersey. , we can improve patient care and bring technology to market,” said Neal Lemon, director of the Cooper Innovation Center. “This is a very important step forward for Cooper and we are excited to work with the FHA team to grow and spread the innovation in New Jersey and around the world.”
