Health Innovation Commercialization Series

Sponsored by the Georgia Clinical & Translational Science Alliance and the Coulter Translational Fund

 

Bridging the gap from university innovation to commercialization


The Health Innovation Commercialization Series was created to provide commercialization guidance to the university research community. The series is free and open to entrepreneurs in the life sciences, GA CTSA, Georgia Tech and Emory University faculty, staff, graduate students, post-doc, residents and fellows.

The series will provide tools to communicate the commercial potential of your research and cover topics on how to take your technology from the lab to commercial success and explore market opportunities. Events range from interactive exercises to panel discussions led by industry experts and investors sharing their insights and lessons learned through first-hand experience. 

Attendees have the option to attend single events or can register to receive the GA CTSA Entrepreneurship Certificate by attending the majority of the series. Contact Gayathri Srinivasan at gayathris@emory.edu for additional information or to register for the certificate.

Please note that new applicants for Coulter funding are required to attend the six events from January – May (sessions marked with asterisks below).
