The I4SUD program, created by a team of experts from the Johns Hopkins Carey Business School, was developed with a grant from the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) to facilitate the commercialization of innovative solutions for SUD. The I4SUD comprehensive entrepreneurship education program will give researchers the knowledge needed to commercialize their research, the skills needed to be successful entrepreneurs, and the opportunity to apply the knowledge and skills to their own work.
Furthermore, the I4SUD graduates will gain skills to apply for translational funding, license intellectual property, and launch companies. They will also be part of a virtual community of researchers and practitioners transforming the culture of academic scientists, turning discovery into application.
