The objectives of the annual competition are to fund research that brings new knowledge into practice or policy, help implement research outcomes, and transform discoveries into commercial opportunities. The award provides funding for Dr. Westerberg’s project, “Targeted stem cell therapy to the inner ear using new magnetized cochlear implant.”
