MSU’s Jayaraman Gets Funding for Food Packaging Film Idea
Krishnamurthy Jayaraman, professor, Department of Chemical Engineering and Materials Science, has just received a Tier II Michigan Translational Research and Commercialization Program (MTRAC) Innovation Hub for AgBio at Michigan State University. The award will be used to further develop a food packaging film that provides improved clarity while providing a suitable barrier to both water vapor and oxygen.
Jointly funded by MSU and the Michigan Strategic Fund, through the Michigan Economic Development Corporation’s Entrepreneur and Innovation Initiative, the MTRAC program provides project funding at a critical point with a laser focus on translational research toward the commercial market.
Tier II Starter Awards are given to projects that are likely, with funding, to generate finite achievements, such as moving the project toward a Tier I Full application or accomplishing a small, but meaningful, step in the commercialization path.
