The Blavatnik Fund for Engineering Innovations in Health

A generous gift from The Blavatnik Family Foundation, headed by Columbia Engineering alumnus Len Blavatnik, supports the Blavatnik Fund for Engineering Innovations in Health.

The Blavatnik Fund for Engineering Innovations in Health supports research at the intersection of engineering and health and aims to expedite the development, application, and commercialization of breakthrough discoveries.  It will support a cohort of doctoral students, the Blavatnik Fellows, providing up to five entering students with fellowship support each year. The gift includes the Blavatnik Acceleration Funds to support interdisciplinary research in two phases. One focus is research at the critical early stage where many breakthrough ideas at the intersection of different engineering fields need funding to get off the ground. The second focus is for later stage research where promising fundamental research requires support to accelerate its potential translation to real-world impact to benefit society.
