Philanthropic gifts to JHTV enable us to allocate nearly $900,000 annually toward technology development projects. Award decisions are made by professional review committees, but JHTV is here to assist you in identifying appropriate grant problems and constructing a compelling application. Note that each technology (as defined by JHTV case number) can receive only one JHTV translational funding award per fiscal year.
