Oversight Committee


The University of Pittsburgh Coulter TPII Program's Oversight Committee is comprised of clinicians experienced in translation, business leaders accomplished in medical device commercialization including regulatory affairs and reimbursement, large medical device company representatives, and local and national angel investors and venture capitalists. The Oversight Committee has a pivotal role in selecting the projects that receive funding and subsequently mentoring these projects throughout the funding cycle.
