Sanofi Biomedical Innovation Award Program (saBIP)
Description of program
In 2010, Sanofi and CBI established a strategic alliance to advance knowledge in the area of human health through basic and applied research and to promote scientific exchange between academia and industry. The alliance provides Sanofi the opportunity to develop therapeutic, diagnostic and prognostic applications based on the discoveries made and MIT investigators the opportunity for funding and other translational resources for their research.
As part of the Alliance, Sanofi supports a number of activities at MIT, including a Biomedical Innovation Award Program managed by the MIT Center for Biomedical Innovation. These financial awards provide MIT researchers with focused, flexible and rapidly available funds for translational biomedical research. Calls for proposals happen twice a year. Please check back for 2013 RFP announcements.
