Translational Opportunity Fund

Overview and Program Goals

The Translational Opportunity Fund grant program provides funds to UO innovators for services, tools and other resources needed to successfully translate their research and launch new UO research-based startup companies. The three funding tiers of the program align with different stages in the innovation and company spinout trajectory.

In order to support economic development that is more fully equitable, The Translational Opportunity Fund particularly seeks applications from individuals that come from populations that are historically underrepresented in translational research and research-based entrepreneurship.

The solicitation and review process for the Translational Opportunity Fund are currently being revised. Please contact if you are considering a proposal during this transition period.
