President's Translational and Entrepreneurial Research Fund (PTEF)

PTEF logoThe President’s Translational and Entrepreneurial Research Fund (PTEF) is sponsored by the Office of the President in partnership with the Office of the Vice President for Research and the Office of Technology Commercialization (OTC) at UT Health San Antonio to provide early stage seed funds for applied research.  The PTEF is intended to provide funding for projects that have a high probability of being commercialized but are unlikely to do so without gap funding.  Proposals are sought from investigators interested in developing their ideas into biomedical products (therapeutics, biologics, devices, software, etc.).

Funding: Funds are awarded to UT Health investigators for direct project costs for short-term milestones of 2 to 3 months.  The amount of the award will be determined by the financial resources necessary to achieve the desired milestone(s).  Typically this amount will be in the range of $5,000-$25,000.
