At NC State, we know discoveries made here can change the world. And this year, six promising projects will receive support from the Chancellor’s Innovation Fund (CIF), helping researchers turn their discoveries into market-ready solutions.

NC State established the CIF in 2010 to help researchers bridge the gap between publicly funded research and the point at which discoveries are developed enough to secure private funding. To date, the CIF has granted nearly $3 million to 45 projects — which have attracted over $53 million in follow-on funding. These projects have generated 24 startup companies, 45 license agreements and more than $1.1 million in licensing revenue.

The work of this year’s CIF awardees ranges from a novel technique for infusing coffee into foods to groundbreaking developments in disease treatment — including a potential alternative to chemotherapy.
