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 fourth class Developing a Business Plan and Securing Investors will cover topics such as: A presentation of the timelines, budget and investment required to achieve key milestones, and a case study on The Path to Getting the Company Funded and Product to Market, with a special presentation by Mark Leuchtenberger (CEO; Chiasma, Acusphere, Rib-X) and Cameron Durrant (CEO; KaloBios) Register Here!
