"Wow, the resources and knowledge we gained through the MDIC program were extremely valuable! Access to the clinicians at the Upstate University Hospital gave us so many insights into new pathways for our product. Our investment and participation in the MDIC program has given back to us 10 fold! "
—Dwight Cheu, CEO, ZEPHYRx (2019 MDIC Graduate)
"MDIC brought together a team of knowledgeable mentors who provided valuable advice and connections. The process has helped us think through the challenges ahead and prepare for our next stage of development."
—Ted Eveleth, Halomine (2019 MDIC Graduate)
"The connections to universities and organizations in the central New York area and beyond has been invaluable for us. The program helps us be capital efficient while making a lot of progress. We’ve also connected with engineering/product development and regulatory mentors through the program, which has enabled us to make a ton of progress in a relatively short period of time. I couldn’t recommend the MDIC program enough."
