Succeeding at the Inventor's Business - translating scientific invention into product success
Please join us as three accomplished inventors join entrepreneurs and executives to discuss the path from invention to product development and commercial success. Our speakers have contributed critical inventions to products ranging from drug coated stents for treating heart disease, recombinant monoclonal antibodies for cancer and rheumatic disease, and nanoparticles/liposomes for targeting drugs to cancer cells. These products have materially improved medical care and, together, have annual sales of >$30B.
