Accelerating Innovation

New tools and technologies can drive discovery in science. That's why many of our researchers share what they develop in the lab, often in partnership with the Zuckerman Institute's Advanced Instrumentation team or Columbia Technology Ventures. Making new tools freely available helps not only to advance research into mind, brain and behavior, but also to enable promising technologies born in the lab to reach the market as quickly and successfully as possible, for the benefit of human health.
