The Biomedical Translation Bridge (BTB) program came to a close in August with a BTB Finale which celebrated the success of all of the funded BTB projects. The BTB Program was launched in May 2019 and the MDPP were a key partner working with MTPConnect in delivery of the program. Dr Andrew Milligan, MDPP's MedTech Venture Partner for the BTB program, chaired a session at the finale and Prof Karen Reynolds was involved in a panel discussion.
Some highlights of the BTB Program are:
- 29 Australian medtech and pharma technologies progressed;
- 47 new patent and trademark applications and licences;
- 7 new products launched;
- more than $150M injected into the MTP sector.
