The REDIzone

The Research, Entrepreneurship, Discovery and Innovation Zone (REDIzone®) at NEOMED enables innovators of biotechnology to take their research from concept to capital. With a mission to improve health worldwide, the program forms strategic partnerships to unite entrepreneurs and early stage biomedical companies with University resources to catalyze the development of biotechnology.

Strategic partnerships with the REDIzone open doors to new opportunities and provide invaluable resources, including:

  • state-of-the art wet lab space and facilities
  • adjacent office and conference spaces
  • world class scientists, technology and technology transfer operations
  • access to teaching hospitals, business development and funding resources


The REDIzone is located in The Timken Foundation of Canton Innovation Corridor, on the campus of NEOMED. As a local stakeholder, The Timken Foundation of Canton has provided a major gift to support the REDIzone’s mission as a generator of private companies to drive economic prosperity in our region.
