Timeslot: Thursday, April 4, 2019 - 4:15pm to 6:15pm
Track: Career Catalysis
Room: Skagit 3


Feel like you’ve worked really hard on your research and do not want to see it simply published and forgotten? Do you want to see patients actually benefit from this research? This panel of researchers and experts will explain your options for translating your work from benchtop to bedside while considering the need to publish findings. Also, if you want to continue along the same path and work post-graduation, our panel will discuss how this can be accomplished and what steps should be taken now as a student. For academic investigators and professors, this session will explain the options for pursuing commercialization and the balance between publishing, patenting, and being an entrepreneur to push your technology forward. Speakers will include members of regulatory commissions, biotech startup founders, and industry personnel who have successfully brought medical breakthroughs into the clinic.
