General Information

This workshop will focus on how to develop business opportunities from genomic research and biodata. It is aimed at professionals involved in the translation of early-stage technologies who want to further develop their knowledge on the commercial paths to the application of genomics into healthcare products and services.

The workshop will bring together attendees and experts to discuss and share practical advice on developing opportunities for precision medicine. Ultimately, the impact of genomic medicine on patients will be driven not only by improvements in stratification tools but also by the availability of new targeted drugs. In this workshop, we will therefore consider a wide range of applications relevant to precision medicine.

If you are working as a business development manager, a technology transfer professional, investment analyst, innovation funder, or you are an entrepreneur or a researcher actively involved in translation and commercialisation; this course is for you. The workshop is designed for 40 participants to maximise discussions.
