Event description

Description

Co-hosted by Duke OLV & Duke I&E, Invented at Duke celebrates and promotes the diverse accomplishments of Duke innovators and entrepreneurs.

The event showcases select technologies, inventions, and novel ideas–illustrating the breadth of Duke discoveries–while also highlighting Duke’s innovation and entrepreneurship resources and facilitating discussions among Duke inventors and the broader Duke community.

Join us to celebrate innovations coming out of Duke, learn about Duke’s resources, and engage with inventors, the local investment community, alumni, Duke leadership, and researchers.

At 5:30 we’ll hear special remarks from this year's guest speaker, Derek Jantz, CSO of Precision BioSciences, a recently-made-public company spun out of the School of Medicine. Precision uses a proprietary genome editing method called ARCUS to overcome cancers, cure genetic diseases, and create safer, more productive food sources.

If you’re an inventor, entrepreneur, researcher, licensee, investor, or someone interested in partnering with Duke, we hope you’ll join us for our 3rd Annual #InventedAtDuke Celebration.
