Research Interests

The Wallace H. Coulter Foundation Translational Research Partnership in Biomedical Engineering

The Wallace H. Coulter Foundation has awarded U.Va. BME one of nine $4.5M Translational Research Partnership Awards in Biomedical Engineering. The task facing the department is twofold: support research projects that are explicitly translational in nature, and in the process, test and validate models of translational research that can be widely adopted

As U.Va.’s Coulter Project Director, David Chen is the primary resource for the University and the Coulter Foundation’s efforts to enable and lead an innovative translational research process. In addition to managing the U.Va.-Coulter Partnership, David oversees identification and development of translational research projects in the U.Va. School of Medicine.

The U.Va.-Coulter Partnership funds between 4-6 projects each year. The translational nature of these projects is reinforced by requiring that they be led jointly by investigators from the BME department and U.Va. clinical practitioners. For information on funded projects and the application process, please visit the U.Va.-Coulter Partnership Website.
