UMass LIFT Program Final Pitches

At the beginning of 2024, a cohort of graduates was selected to participate in the inaugural UMass LIFT Program. On April 25th, the Fellows will present their novel approaches and solutions to Aging and Alzheimer’s Disease during the LIFT networking event!

Join uM2D2 for an exciting evening filled with new ideas, collaboration and innovation in this area of healthcare.

The UMass LIFT Program is a cohort-based accelerator initiative tailored for those passionate about aging-related innovations. Over the course of a semester, participants have engaged in 14 enriching sessions, delving deep into the realms of biotech and MedTech. This program not only fosters innovation but also nurtures the careers of researchers and master’s students committed to the aging space. By focusing on Alzheimer’s disease and other aging-related conditions, LIFT aims to drive meaningful progress in the field while empowering the next generation of leaders.
