Introduction to Life Science Technology Commercialization Symposium

Friday June 1, 2012

8:30am to 6:00pm

Location: Research Auditorium, Building 10, North Campus Research Complex, University of Michigan

The translation and commercialization of Life Science Technology is receiving increased attention both nationally and at the University of Michigan.  The Introduction to Life Science Technology Commercialization Symposium will provide an overview of the different paths that can be taken for successful technology commercialization as well as the key factors that should be considered.  Speakers include faculty who have successfully commercialized University Technology and nationally recognized members of the venture capital and business communities.  

University of Michigan Faculty, Graduate Students and Post-docs with an interest in the commercialization of life science technologies (therapeutics, diagnostics, medical devices and life science tools) should attend this event. 

This event is a collaboration between the Michigan Nanotechnology Institute for Medicine and Biological Sciences, Rackham Graduate School, the College of Engineering Center for Entrepreneurship, Medical School Business Development, the Medical Innovation Center, the Ross School of Business Zell Lurie Institute for Entrepreneurial Studies and the Unit for Laboratory Animal Medicine.
