This past spring, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center collaborated with Techstars Healthcare Accelerator to develop an innovation incubator that enabled new technology companies to work with physicians and staff members to refine their products. During the three-month program, clinicians and staff members selected 11 companies out of about 500 that applied to mentor to develop new clinical and financial applications.

Now, the facility is beginning to craft another incubator program to start in January, with 10 to 12 available slots and applications being accepted until October 15. Clive Svendsen, PhD, director of the board of governors at the Regenerative Medicine Institute, the stem cell research unit of Cedars, expects more than 500 applications again this year.
