Evaluation Criteria

The Emory/GT CTP will review all applications for compliance with the eligibility criteria. A committee composed of experts in biomedical engineering, clinical practice, technology transfer, venture capital and business management, will review the applications for funding. Each eligible application will be judged on the following criteria:

  • Significant unmet or underserved clinical need
  • Intellectual property position
  • Substantial improvement over the “Gold Standard” of current care or a significant reduction in the cost of health care delivery while maintaining standard of care
  • Reasonable and achievable milestones
  • Strength and nature of the clinical collaboration
  • High probability of attracting follow-on funding within 2-3 years of receiving the award
