How do you make money out of your ideas?

Edinburgh Bioquarter is a joint venture between the University, the NHS, Alexandria Real Estate Inc. and Scottish Enterprise. It's two main roles are to increase the level of collaboration between the College of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine, the NHS and the biopharmaceutical industry as well as increasing the number of life science companies located in and around Little France. The programme represents a key element of the Scottish governments drive to grow Scotland's life science business over the next 15 years.

The presentation will be given on the 22nd June at 10:30 am in the Wellcome Lecture Theatre of the Queen's Medical Research Institute and will be followed by refreshments in the Fyffe room above the Drum Restaurant where Mike will be available to take further questions.

Everybody is welcome.

Please email The Little France Postdoctoral Society (LFPDS) if you plan to attend the talk so that they can organise the catering.
