Validation Program

The Validation Program was created to foster the transition of promising stem cell technologies having significant commercial potential from Universities and research labs where they were discovered, to the commercial sector, where they can be developed into products and services that meet identified market needs.  Specifically, it is the intent of the Validation Program to foster the commercialization of such technologies through technology validation, market assessment, and the creation of University start-up companies in Maryland. It is also the intent of the Program to foster collaborations between various schools, departments, and institutions within research organizations in the State.
