For the past 15 years, the Foster Center for Innovation has proudly served as the hub of innovation-focused activities at the University of Maine. It has established itself as the state’s leading resource for fostering innovation and driving commercialization, serving both the campus community and outside businesses and organizations.
We are excited to invite you to commemorate this milestone by joining us for an open house! Come connect with student and faculty entrepreneurs, discover exciting commercialization projects, and learn more about our academic programs and student internship opportunities.
Examples of projects you’ll be able to see:
A bio-inspired coating on commercial catheters that can reduce the need for antibiotics making them safer for patients.
WAVED is a patented risk-assessment technology that uses a patient’s mammographic history and clinical data to identify the physical markers believed to be linked to malignant tumor onset and growth, leading to early detection of breast cancer.
Light refreshments will be served.
