i-Teams brings together the brightest undergraduate and graduate students, as well as postdocs, and the university’s ground-breaking research to develop commercially viable strategies and build valuable university-industry links. The main goal of the project is to translate high-potential medical technologies through the collaboration between a research group and an i-Team.  Using the expert knowledge of the inventors, each team uses creative and innovative approaches to find the best way to commercialise the technology beyond the laboratory application.
