The UCSF Catalyst Awards Internship Program provides an opportunity to learn about translational research and the process of advancing academic discoveries along the translational path to commercialization and patient benefit. The internship runs parallel to the Catalyst Awards Program and allows the interns to participate in the activities of the Catalyst Awards Program, the review process, and the interactions between the academic researchers and industry experts mentoring the projects along their development. Product tracks include therapeutics, diagnostics, medical devices, digital health, and biotools.

The program will introduce the interns to entrepreneurship and the industry perspective in evaluating the potential of scientific discoveries to lead to products, including: defining the unmet medical needs being addressed; assessing commercialization potential; opportunity for intellectual property; development feasibility for early-stage ideas; and defining key milestones on the development path. The program is of value to those interested in engaging in translational research and innovation and entrepreneurship in both the academic and industry settings.
