The UMass Center for Advancing Point of Care in Heart, Lung, Blood, and Sleep Diseases (CAPCaT), a member of the NIH Point-of-Care Network (POCTRN), supports the development and testing of promising “late-stage” point of care technologies. The Center has issued 28 grants to point of care companies and is currently funded through the summer of 2028.

The 2024 Award Competition is an opportunity for PoCT startups to earn up to $100,000 to support their technology. We will award up to four startups, who will have then have the chance to pitch their solution at the 2025 Point of Care Showcase in Boston.

We are particularly interested in the development of disease diagnostics and monitoring devices, wearable technologies, mobile applications, and other tools to improve heart, lung, blood, and sleep (HLBS) health in historically underserved, low-resource, and remote communities.

The deadline for this opportunity has passed. Stay posted for new upates.
