The Cornew Innovation Fund is a pilot project program intended to support potentially high value, high risk research at the juncture of multiple disciplines.

The Cornew Fund has not only led to more than $14M new federal funding but has led to the development of a new class of therapeutics for treating Alzheimer’s disease, new surgical glues, and surprising new insights into the earliest stages of fertilization and embryonic development.

The expectation is that these monies will be spent within one year of receipt and that the awardees will submit a brief report on the work performed for inclusion in the Annual Report of the Chemistry of Life Processes Institute. Awards are made possible through the philanthropy of the CLP Executive Advisory Board, typically on an annual basis with applications solicited in advance of the annual fall board meeting.
