If you are interested in learning about medical technology commercialization opportunities, or would like to network with experienced med-tech inventors, investors and entrepreneurs, plan to attend a special forum on Thursday, July 21, 2011 on the Sacramento campus of UC Davis. The forum, part of UC Davis’ Medical Technology Commercialization Clinic program, will include presentations by an angel investor and several med-tech teams that have successfully developed commercialization plans for their innovative technologies and concepts. The event will offer ample networking and discussion opportunities, as well as encourage each attendee to engage, learn and be challenged.
Thursday, July 21, 2011
Time: 5 – 8 p.m.
Location: UC Davis Cancer Center
4501 X St., Sacramento
Please RSVP here to attend the forum.
Now in its second year, UC Davis’ med-tech commercialization project brings together multidisciplinary teams of physicians and engineers, science, technology, engineering and mathematics students, as well as post-doctoral, business and law students, and experienced entrepreneurs. Through special events and hands-on workshops, the program teaches participants about unmet medical needs and the commercialization process, and shows teams how to advance potentially high-impact medical devices and products to improve health and patient care.
The upcoming July 21 forum is the second in a series of quarterly meetings to showcase med-tech commercialization in the Sacramento region. It is part of the National Science Foundation’s “Partnerships for Innovation” program, which was established to stimulate the transformation of knowledge created by research and education into innovations that create new wealth; build strong local, regional, and national economies; and improve the national well-being.
