The Arizona Center for Accelerated BioMedical Innovation (ACABI) is a “creativity engine,” established to develop practical, value-added solutions to emerging unmet needs.
ACABI specifically will focus on the mounting group of unmet needs in health care, well care and individual well-being, in the rapidly evolving world and society in which we live. The methodology of ACABI is to identify addressable elements within unmet needs, while at the same time identifying novel science, technology and other discoveries that may be brought to bear to develop novel solutions which may be translated to reality in the here and now. At the heart of ACABI is inventiveness and a synthesis capability, to creatively mix diverse elements to yield a range of novel solutions. As such ACABI creates value, enhances connectivity, converts ideas to reality, catalyzes academic grantsmanship as well as practical commercialization of new knowledge, discoveries and insight generated at the University of Arizona. ACABI converts new knowledge generated at the UA into real world, present use, economically viable devices, agents, methods and processes to aid Arizona, the United States and beyond. ACABI brings the UA to the leading edge and prepares it to excel in the future.
