Helping underrepresented innovators move their healthtech solutions toward commercialization.

The RADx® Tech DIVE fellowship program provides innovators from populations historically underrepresented in biotech research the support and skills they need to commercialize their technologies.

This unique 28-week online course, taught by experienced healthtech mentors and industry experts, builds upon the lessons learned in RADx Tech by exploring project maturity, addressing key risks, learning how to secure funding and so much more.

Course Details

This comprehensive course features interactive webinars based on core deliverables as defined in CIMIT’s Guidance and Impact Tracking System (GAITS) and expert facilitated feedback sessions, alternating every other week over the course of 28-weeks, followed by a work package development session. The program will culminate in a final plenary session with four fellows, and their teams, winning a prize up to $7,500 to support future endeavors.

By the end of the program, all fellows will have a clearer picture of their project's maturity, key risks to address, and actionable next steps toward securing funding. In addition, all fellows that complete the course will receive a certificate of completion and recognition from NIBIB.


The course will cover developing business models, interacting with stakeholders, the patient journey, IP, regulatory, reimbursement, pitching, funding, networking, and more topics relevant to a successful healthtech commercialization journey.
