Lab to Market

Research is just the first step on the road to a commercialized product. In order for research to make it to the market, there are a variety of obstacles that must be tackled. In this series we hear from thought leaders who share their experience in addressing the regulatory environment, licensing/tech transfer, funding opportunities -- road signs on the way to successfully bringing discoveries to patients.

Communicating Biomedical Research

Communicating science in an understandable and impactful way is difficult. Even if you are speaking with other researchers, there may be a disconnect in what you think is understood and what is actually understand. Without effective communication, the importance and relevance you see in your own research will be missed by others.

This series focuses on effectively communicating complex topics in ways that can be understood by diverse audiences -- your peers, the public, and your potential investors.
