Effective Collaborations with Industry

Tuesday, March 27th
1 – 2:30 p.m.
Kilachand Center Colloquium Room, 610 Commonwealth Avenue

Collaboration with industry can often lead to excellent research opportunities. However, it can be often difficult to find the right partners, and discussions can easily get bogged down around confidentiality, intellectual property, and budgeting concerns. This panel presentation will unpack some of these issues and provide you with some guidelines for creating productive and mutually beneficial collaborations with industry. Learn more | RSVP


BU Technology Wonders: Potential Biomedical Applications

Wednesday, March 28th
2 – 5 p.m.
Hiebert Lounge, 72 E Concord Street

Join us for an afternoon exploring new technologies developed by BU investigators from the Charles River and Medical Campuses. Clinicians & basic and clinician scientists are invited to explore applications to their work.

The afternoon will include 8-min presentations, separated with a coffee break and followed by wine & cheese around table discussions/explorations. Tables will be headed by the speakers and selected clinical chairs. These round table discussions are intended to give greater opportunities to directly explore specific topics in greater detail. An anticipated outcome is to follow up pilot grants to support 2-3 best CR-Med campus collaborative technology development applications.
