A Trans-Atlantic Research Alliance Comes to Fruition

A Trans-Atlantic Research Alliance Comes to Fruition: Universities from the state and England team up to develop innovative health care products - The White Rose Health Innovation Partnership (WHIP), has paired universities and health care companies along their respective Atlantic Coasts in an effort to facilitate the commercialization of medical research. The White Rose University Consortium, made up of three British research schools, chose the Garden State’s health care community to be part of the effort in March.

Spearheading the Partnership on U.S. soil are the New Jersey Institute of Technology, Princeton University, Rutgers University and the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey. WHIP will disperse about $9 million, largely in the form of grant awards, won from the Higher Education Funding Council of England.
