West Loop Innovations, a collaboration between UIC and Deerfield Management, was launched to accelerate the translation of transformative therapeutic technologies out of UIC research.

Starting this fall, UIC researchers will be able to submit proposals for projects to be supported by West Loop Innovations. Accepted projects will receive a development plan, resources to achieve Investigational New Drug (IND) readiness and operational expertise.

At this Information Session, Deerfield and UIC team members will:

  • Discuss the RFP process
  • Share the types of compelling proposals they are seeking
  • Answer any other questions related to West Loop Innovations

Advanced registration is required. Reception to follow.
