Background

Established in 2000 in DE and FL - Founded by the late Wallace H. Coulter to fund improvements in health care through medical research and engineering. Coulter was an engineer, inventor, and entrepreneur who applied engineering principles to a biomedical problem, resulting in the discovery of the "Coulter Principle." He founded the Coulter Corporation (now Beckman Coulter, Inc.), a medical diagnostics company, which developed and marketed the first automated blood cell counters and flow cytometers.

Purpose and Activities

The foundation is dedicated to improving human health care by supporting translational research in biomedical engineering-research directed at the transfer of promising technologies within the university research laboratory that are progressing towards commercial development and clinical practice.
