Yale Blavatnik Fund eyes digital health

A five-year-old Yale program that has helped dozens of drug and medical device companies get their ideas off the ground is now looking to help birth more university spinouts in a new field — digital health and health care IT.

The Blavatnik Fund for Innovation at Yale said it is setting aside “a significant portion” of the $2.6 million it plans to award in 2021-2022 for new projects in those areas.
