From Concept to Commercialization: How to Take an Idea to Market

This 12-week series lays the foundation for translating key laboratory discoveries to clinical innovations that improve patient lives. Those who are passionate about seeing their ideas come to market and who seek a practical and efficient process for making that happen will benefit from this course. Each class, taught by experts in their specialties, will include both didactic and problem-based learning. Those who attend the series consistently will have a written project proposal ready for a panel review on the final day.
