It is important to identify early on those that can create a significant impact in prevention and treatment and help them scale for the India market. prescribe) + innovative ways to administer the test so that we can test at scale.
C-CAMP’s expertise in the deeptech life sciences domain is being leveraged in evaluating shortlisted applications (therapeutics, vaccines, prevention, devices tracks) by ACT as well as mentoring the ACT grantees for their accelerated progress. This is particularly useful in tracks that are involved in funding deeptech and science projects.
