There is a large gap between disruptive technological innovations in Universities and federal labs and commercially relevant technologies that enter the market. One of the principal reasons for this gap is the absence of resources (entrepreneurs, knowledge base, capital, etc) to facilitate the movement of the technology along the commercialization path.

The Entrepreneur-in-Residence Program at BHI is aimed at ensuring that disruptive technologies receive all the resources that are required to transform the technology from a discovery into a commercially relevant product and eventually have a measurable impact on human health. The program has been created to support scientists, early stage start-ups and licensed technologies to provide them with access to these resources.
