Welcome

PITCH Program in Innovative Therapeutics for Connecticut’s Health

We apply innovative approaches to validate new disease treatment concepts from the research laboratories of Yale and UConn. We do this by providing a strong scientific foundation for the creation of new Connecticut-based biopharma companies to address unmet medical needs.

Combining Yale’s Center for Molecular Discovery, with 13 years of successful assay development, screening and synthetic chemistry, and role in starting four Yale biotechs with UConn’s strong traditions in medicinal chemistry and drug development at the School of Pharmacy, and their biochemistry and protein expression prowess at UConn Health, together with successful ventures by faculty leaders Professors Craig Crews and Dennis Wright, PITCH is poised for success.

The next round of applications are due on March 15, 2017. Applications should be sent to pitch@yale.edu and an application receipt will be sent as confirmation.  Access the application here.
