Please join the Precision Medicine Initiative at Columbia University this spring as it hosts the inaugural  Life Science Entrepreneurship seminar series.  The series consists of 4 classes, each centered around a case study exploring best practices among industry leaders. 

The objective of the seminar series is to expose graduate students and young faculty from the life science disciplines to the entrepreneurial world. The hope is that the seminar series will inform and inspire the participants to consider careers in biotechnology.  The audience is anticipated to be graduate students, postdocs and young faculty from the life science disciplines and related faculties at the University.

The third class The Challenges of Founding a Pre-Clinical Stage Company will cover topics such as: Identifying a Lead Program, Securing Funding, Building a Management Team, and Regulatory and Clinical Planning, with a special presentation by Kevin Mills (CSO; Cyteir Therapeutics) and Laurence Blumberg (COO; Syntimmune,Inc.).
