Irschick Receives Technology Award

Biology professor Duncan Irschick along with colleagues Al Crosby (Polymer Sciences), and Brian Umberger (Kinesiology) has received a $25,000 Commercial Ventures and Intellectual Property (CVIP) Technology Award. The award will help these scientists develop new products from their recent invention of Geckskin™, and to potentially create a startup based on these products.

Established in 2004, the fund was created and is maintained through licensing revenues supplemented by a contribution from the President's Office. According to UMass Present Robert Caret, "This program highlights University of Massachusetts researchers who stand at the forefront of scientific innovation."
