    Informing Innovation 2019

    Location: North Carolina Biotechnology CenterTo bring a solution from bench to bedside, life science companies have a myriad of information needs at every stage of development. From market projections for specific therapeutic areas, to intelligence about competitors' research programs, to scientific literature, critical information can be expensive to access and time-consuming to search. Time spent hunting for information is time spent away from developing technologies that can heel and feed the world.At Informing Innovation 2019, learn how to get up to speed in life science market research techniques, learn the landscape of scientific literature and business information resources, and equip yourself with sources and strategies for finding the data you need to innovate. You will also be connected with content providers to learn more about the industry tools and resources that are essential to discovery.Cost: $35 (early bird pricing ends August 31. Registration includes lunch)Register

    3rd Annual Invented at Duke Celebration

    Location: Penn PavilionCo-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. The event aims to create an atmosphere of celebration around innovations coming out of Duke, provide education about Duke’s resources, and serve as a platform for inventors to engage with each other, the local investment community, alumni, Duke leadership, and researchers.At 5:30 p.m., we'll hear special remarks from this year's guest speaker, Matt Kane, CEO 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.GCB's Bruce Donald and his invention Gavilián Biodesign will be featured at this event.Please note: There will be shuttles running continuously from the Washington Duke/JB Duke to Penn Pavilion from 5 - 7:30 p.m.Please RSVPQuestions?
