Tech Transfer for Medical Advances – Free ePanel

  • 14 February 2018
  • Virtual Event – Keystone Symposia
  • 12:00PM – 01:30PM ET

keystone symposia

 

The pharmaceutical industry needs access to innovation from academia to develop new drugs, and academic institutions are more interested than ever in finding a commercial route for their discoveries. However, the process whereby an academic discovery gives rise to a new medicine is too complex and inefficient. What are the obstacles that result in such inefficiency? How can we overcome these challenges? The goal of this Virtual Keystone Symposium is to tackle these challenges and identify potential solutions.
