a New York State Center for Advanced Technology at Columbia University

www.cat.columbia.edu

In 1983, New York State established a Center for Advanced Technology (CAT) Program to promote the collaboration between its industry base and its major research institutions. The goal was to facilitate technology transfer and commercialization using the expertise and resources in academia to benefit companies economically.

Currently, the program continues with 15 CATs at 13 institutions located around the state. Each CAT has a specific technology focus (http://www.nystar.state.ny.us/cats.htm) and approach to helping its partner companies. The CAT program is supported by Empire State Development, Division of Science, Technology and Innovation (a.k.a. NYSTAR). NYSTAR currently offers a range of programs to help promote the state’s technology base.

Columbia University’s Center for Advanced Information Management has been a participant in the CAT program since its inception. CAIM’s focus is at the intersection of biomedical science, information technology, and biomedical imaging, with the occasional inclusion of other areas of biomedicine and information processing. Its main contributing units are the Department of Biomedical Informatics and the Center for Computational Biology and Bioinformatics, both at the medical center (College of Physicians and Surgeons), and the Computer Science Department and imaging group of the Department of Biomedical Engineer- ing, both in the School of Engineering and Applied Science. This broad range of expertise serves CAIM well in allowing for innovative interdisciplinary projects involving specialists from both schools and campuses.
