The South Florida Accelerator (TSFA) and Nova Southeastern University (NSU) announced plans to form new startup companies from NSU’s research and development (R&D) pipeline.

“We are excited to be working with researchers and leaders at NSU’s Center for Collaborative Research (CCR),” said Christopher Malter, co-founder and managing director, TSFA.  “NSU is an uncontested leader in the healthcare R&D sector, and we are ecstatic to have the opportunity to collaborate with them.”

Under the direction of H. Thomas Temple, M.D., and Richard Jove, Ph.D., NSU has assembled many of the world’s prominent scientists in the CCR.

This collaboration will further support the ongoing growth of South Florida’s innovation ecosystem.

“NSU is pleased to collaborate with The South Florida Accelerator to cultivate tech growth and innovation,” said Dr. Temple, NSU senior vice president of translational research and economic development.  “By working with organizations like TSFA, we are fostering the development of technologies and leading researchers that will lead to amazing transformations in the Florida technology space.”
