The California State University Program for Education and Research in Biotechnology (CSUPERB) Entrepreneurial Joint Venture (JV) Matching Grant Program provides support for CSU faculty engaged in external biotechnology-partnerships. CSUPERB recognizes that collaborations with partners and institutions external to the CSU broaden the opportunities for innovative biotechnology projects, promote multi-disciplinary partnerships, encourage product development and other translational and outreach activities, and should enrich California’s communities and life sciences industry.
