UC awards 13 grants to projects to bridge 'valley of death'

The University of California has awarded 13 “proof of concept” grants to researchers to help bridge the so-called “valley of death” and develop new technologies or treatments.
Among the winners of grants ranging from $100,000 to $250,000 were three Bay Area projects. Gao Liu of the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory is working on a conductive polymer binder and silicon composite electrode, the University of California, Berkeley’s James Evans is developing completely printable batteries for energy storage and UC Berkeley’s Dmitry Budker is working on a next generation of ultra-precise magnetic sensors.
