UofL News

The Kentucky Network for Innovation & Commercialization (KYNETIC) has selected its first round of promising university-born health and medical technologies, each of which will receive training and $33,000 for development.

Six projects were selected this funding cycle, two of which are from UofL:

  • Pediatric NeuroRecovery Posture Control System (researcher: Andrea Behrman, PhD, PT, FAPTA)
  • Vertify Probe: Intraoperative Device for Measurement of Bone Quality (researchers: Stuart Williams, Maxwell Boakye, and Michael Voor)

KYNETIC is a statewide program supported by $6.6 million in funding, including a $4 million Research Evaluation and Commercialization Hub (REACH) grant from the National Institutes of Health and matching funds. The goal is to advance the most promising biomedical research innovations — including pharmaceuticals, devices and apps — from the state’s eight public universities and the Kentucky Community & Technical College System (KCTCS).
