Dr. Zhang and Dr. Zhu Receive Grant from Maryland Innovation Initiative
The Department of Veterinary Medicine would like to congratulate Dr. Yanjin Zhang and Dr. Xiaoping Zhu on their recently awarded grants from the Maryland Innovation Initiative (MII).
MII was created as a partnership between the State of Maryland and five Maryland academic research institutions: Johns Hopkins University; Morgan State University; University of Maryland, College Park; UMD, Baltimore; and UMD, Baltimore County. It is designed to promote the commercialization of research conducted at the qualifying universities.
Dr. Zhang’s and Dr. Zhu’s awards were given through the Innovation Commercialization Program which aims to foster the transition of promising technologies developed at qualifying universities to the commercial sector, where products and services can continue to be improved upon and marketed publicly.
