Biotechnology Entrepreneurs: War Stories from the Front - part of Pittsburgh Life Sciences Week
Thu 5/25 10:00AM - 12:00PM
Public Health Auditorium (G023)

The Department of Human Genetics at the Graduate School of Public Health is hosting a panel discussion featuring a group of experienced regional biotechnology founders and entrepreneurs. Research is the process of understanding the world around us, and it is a dramatically different skill set from translation or commercialization which births solutions that have never existed before into the world. Though critical to realizing the potential impact of the massive knowledge-generation of our regional universities, related skills are not taught, facilitated, or even actively endorsed at a level concomitant to the importance of this endeavor. This panel will highlight courageous and passionate individuals who have embarked on unchaperoned journeys – what drove them and what they endured. We will have a lively discussion about how they have translated new knowledge into products to positively impact health. The hope is that a pattern emerges through this interactive moderated session that enables the regional community of thousands of researchers to unlock the true potential of their work.
