Welcome to the MSU Innovation Center

The Michigan State University AgBio Innovation Hub is continuing to move AgBio innovation forward across the state and right here at MSU.

Sponsored by the Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC), the Michigan Translational Research and Commercialization (MTRAC) Program is a statewide translational research and commercialization program whose purpose is to move technology out of the laboratory and early stages of development into commercial applications. Simply put, the MTRAC program is designed to ‘translate’ technology from the lab to the marketplace through licensing or the formation of a startup company.
