The Sheikh Zayed Institute’s raison d’être is to translate its research and discoveries to the patients. As stewards of government and donor funds, the Sheikh Zayed Institute is committed to being responsive to market forces by promoting entrepreneurial efforts of its researchers, clinicians, and engineering staff. In the past 18 months, spinoff startup companies were formed to commercialize Sheikh Zayed Institute’s inventions that are subject to the intellectual property polices of Children’s National.
