Science at the Interface to Industry
Workshop running from 24 - 26th April located at the Institute of Genetics and Molecular Medicine: March 2019
This workshop will provide PhD students with skills to interface your research with industry and explore the role of scientists in industry/biotech. Case studies from top scientists will describe interactions with industry and there will be mini-workshops covering hot topics to translate your research ideas.
In small teams you will develop an idea and be judged by a Dragons Den panel. There will be prizes for the best idea and a drinks reception to meet scientists from industry.
