[Source: State Press] – A new initiative at the Biodesign Institute, led by newly-appointed Operations Director Lee Cheatham, aims to turn ASU research into commercial products.

Cheatham, formerly the executive director of the Washington Technology Center, was recently appointed by Biodesign Institute Executive Director Alan Nelson to act as general manager of the Impact Accelerator initiative.

The initiative will choose research projects done by Biodesign students and staff and provide resources to develop that research into a marketable product.
