Steps from A Startup Idea to Launching A Science Company
As the result of continued collaboration between Harvard Stem Cell Institute and Harvard Innovation Lab, this is the fourth workshop in the HSCI-iLab Series on Life Sciences Business Building.
In this workshop, Dr. Rossi will use his own experience with Moderna Therapeutics as a case example, to discuss how to evaluate a startup idea, create a spinout, and how to organize activities within and outside the lab in order to optimize the likelihood of successfully launching the startup.
Derrick Rossi, Assistant Professor, Department of Stem Cell and Regenerative Biology, Harvard University; Principal Faculty, Harvard Stem Cell Institute; Robertson Investigator, New York Stem Cell Foundation; Investigator, Program in Cellular and Molecular Medicine, Children’s Hospital Boston; Co-founder, Moderna Therapeutics
