Entrepreneurship, Grants and all at BIO2014

Having just returned from a 1 day trip to San Diego for the BIO2014 meeting. I was honored to be part of the session called “Mining for gold – creating business opportunities from publicly funded collaborative research”. This session was organized by Dr. Kai Torbjoern Ingemansson (Principal Scientific Officer, European Commission). I gave a talk on “Using the CDD Vault for MM4TB”.

My fellow speakers also included Dr. Bonny Harbinger, (Deputy Director, Office of Technology Transfer, NIH) and Dr. Claire Skentelberry (Secretary General, European Biotechnology Network).

Hopefully we made the audience think more about how going after grants for small companies can be important to develop new products and drive collaborations to help change the way we do science.
