Lunch Seminar: The Funding Landscape for Early Translational Research
11:45am - 12:45pm
September 20, 2013
Presented by BioStrategy Partners, Inc.
Sequestration, increasing competition, reduced allocations, declining pay lines...finding support for early translational research becomes ever more challenging and requires ingenuity, an open mind, and partnering.
SBIR/STTR, Innovation/Proof of Concept Funds, foundations and disease associations can and do provide funding for commercially focused projects - if you know how to access them.
This one-hour lunch seminar will feature discussion and Q&A with experts on each of these sources. Come for lunch and hear what they have to say!
