Hiebert Lounge, L1407, 72 East Concord Street
Hosted by BU Industry Engagement. As public funding for academic research declines and industry places more emphasis on product development over research, new collaboration models are emerging to fill in the gaps. In this special edition of Research on Tap, BU researchers will share how they have worked with industry in different ways to further their research and advance innovation for the benefit of society. The event will also include the presentation of the BU Innovator of the Year Award to Dr. Weining Lu, BU School of Medicine, whose collaboration with Pfizer has led to the development of a potential new drug for chronic kidney disease.
