The Center for Disruptive Musculoskeletal Innovations (CDMI) – a collaboration funded by the National Science Foundation between researchers at the University of California, San Francisco and the University of Toledo – completed its first year with great success.
“The CDMI has gained great momentum since its launch in 2014.” Jeffrey Lotz, PhD, the Center’s Director, said. “At the close of our first year, we have been able to leverage the $40,000 per industry member fee by almost $2,400,000 in cash support and more than $500,000 in capital and in-kind contributions. We are proud of these accomplishments and especially the partnership that we have been able to form with our Industry Board Members and other entities like the FDA. We are looking forward to an even brighter third year.”
