Blavatnik Fund button The Blavatnik Fund for Innovation at Yale

The Blavatnik Fellowship in Life Science Entrepreneurship is designed to foster entrepreneurial skills in the life sciences, linking emerging business leaders with breakthrough innovations from across Yale University. The Blavatnik Fellows work side-by-side with past Blavatnik awardees and applicants as well as participate in screening for this coming year’s applicants, sit with board members during deliberation, and work with a number of Entrepreneurs-in-Residence to ready faculty for final applications.
