BIO INNOVATION & ENTREPRENEURSHIP IN THE MEDICAL AND LIFE SCIENCES: THE FUTURE IS BRIGHT AND EXCITING!
For many years, there has been a keen desire to improve the outputs of academic research in benefiting patients’ lives. This has been a slow process, which often leaves governments frustrated that with so much research funding provided, relatively little is commercialised and thus wasted in terms of community health. In this talk, I will provide insights into what makes projects and start-ups successful based on my own life experience. The translational pathway will be described with the scientific, business and social aspects needed to bring a project to fruition and benefit patients. Most importantly, in this time of the pandemic, it is clear that Innovation & Entrepreneurship are needed more than ever and that the future is bright and exciting for students in the life and medical sciences.Add event to calendar
