• What we'll do You must register here: https://jlabs.tv/CELS2018 CELS - SFO Forum: Academic research to patient solutions A powerful driver for scientist is to make a meaningful impact on society. Many of the discoveries that improved and will improve our lives and health have come from basic university research. However, moving out of the academic lab into the market is generally not the focus of academia. Industry expertise provides a conduit for translational for startups and entrepreneurs to help their ideas and research have a meaningful impact on the world. But how does this all work? We asked a group of professionals from academia and the life science industry to share their experience and advise us on how to successfully translate research to market solutions and explain how different academic systems within and across borders handle this process. Join us to learn more about the challenges and opportunities of moving your science out of the lab and into the market.

    What we're about

    Public Group

    The Bay Area Lifetech group is a meetup every few weeks to bring our local community of Biotechnology, Pharmaceutical, Medical Device, Stem Cell, and Health scientists, investors, executives, practictioners and anyone else interested in creating therapies that benefit the health of society. We also heartily welcome patients to participate in this group!! The goal of the Lifetech group is to get outside the lab, office or home and organize events in and around the Bay Area in the spirit of building a community while having fun. We also hope to promote science in the community to create positive feelings about those of us working hard to enhance and save lives. Please join us if you'd like to get involved. We're always open to new ideas for events and look forward to meeting you!
