How We Collaborate
We work closely with industry in bridging their R&D gaps as well as providing them access to state-of-the-art technology and helping them become technology leaders in their sectors. For several years, WRCB has successfully operated the Industry Research Partnership Program (IRPP) which has fostered close relationships between industry and IITB faculty resulting in fruitful collaborations.
Alliance with Northpond Labs
WRCB has successfully enabled the translation of several deep technologies into spin-off companies. We work closely with angel investors, early-stage biotech VCs and strategic investors to facilitate access to follow-on capital for our entrepreneurs. If you are any of the above, we invite you to become an investment partner and receive information about our spin-off companies and access early investment opportunities.
Brain Targeting Program
For entrepreneurs with access to capital and looking for promising bioengineering technologies spanning affordable diagnostics, MedTech, therapeutics, and synthetic biology, WRCB facilitates access to technologies and technical co-founders for potential spin-off partnerships. You can also explore licensing opportunities through IIT Bombay’s Industrial Research and Consultancy Centre (IRCC) if you wish to take any WRCB-funded technology to market.
Fast creation of diagnostic technologies
Almost all WRCB projects are CSR-relevant. Our projects cover affordable healthcare, sustainability, biomanufacturing, carbon capture and other related areas. We welcome CSR contributions to our projects. You can review the brief’s of our CSR projects below
CSR Project Listing
WRCB accepts co-funding of its research and commercialization activities via private donations through the office of the Dean (Alumni and Corporate Relations). Our work has led to several IPs, publications, and spin-off companies. We are confident that we can scale our impact with additional donations by funding more projects and funding them more deeply. Your donation can help us make a more significant impact in translating bioengineering research.
