The Boston Biomedical Innovation Center (B-BIC) offers funding and resources to academic investigators in order to mitigate the risk of technology development and accelerate translational research on device, diagnostic, and therapeutic technologies for the well-being of patients and society.  B-BIC is currently focused on technologies aimed at improving patient care in heart, lung, blood, and sleep disorders.


B-BIC provides funding for feasibility studies; regulatory, legal, and business development expertise; and entrepreneurial training and mentorship.  

B-BIC DRIVE grants provide up to $200,000 for direct costs to support milestone-based projects. DRIVE projects may take 18 - 24 months and are expected to include proof-of-value and validation studies with significant involvement from the Center.

B-BIC offers pilot grants up to $50,000 to support direct costs for one year.  Pilot projects may include experiments to show the reproducibility of hypothesis-driven research.
