Building Arizona as a global center for research and commercialization in the biosciences and a leader in such areas as precision medicine.
The Flinn Foundation supports the biosciences in Arizona through research grants and stewardship of Arizona’s Bioscience Roadmap, released in 2002 and guiding the growth and development of the state’s bioscience sector through 2025.
The Roadmap’s tagline, “Advancing the Biosciences and Improving Health Outcomes” recognizes the broad spectrum of the biosciences, including research, academia, and product commercialization, as well as the central role of health care within the bioscience sector.
The Flinn Foundation’s Bioscience Entrepreneurship Program has opened its 2020 application for Arizona early-stage bioscience firms seeking funding, professional support, and networking opportunities to grow their business.
The program provides $30,000 in non-dilutive funding support for up to six firms each year, administered through a nonprofit partner, and a professionally developed, yearlong plan specific to the needs of the individual firms. The submission deadline is Monday, November 4, 2019. [Read more]
