2020 Translational Medicine Symposium

All University of Utah faculty, staff and students are invited to the 2020 Translational Medicine Symposium on Feb. 27 at 11:30-5:00 p.m. The symposium will address how clinicians’ ideas and research results can have an impact on patient care — if they are translated into clinical practice. Clinician innovators and entrepreneurs will share their experience and panels of experts will discuss opportunities, barriers, and steps in creating impactful healthcare innovations. This is a great opportunity for faculty, student and postgraduate entrepreneurs to get acquainted with the complex and non-linear process of translating medical devices, diagnostics, and therapeutics.

This event is organized by a team from TVC and Dr. Kai Kuck (Anesthesiology, EFS), under the auspices of the Entrepreneurial Faculty Scholars (Dr. Kai Kuck), TVC (Dr. Keith Marmer), and BioUtah (Kelvyn Cullimore) in collaboration with the HHMI Med to Grad program (U2M2G), directed by Dr. Anthea Letsou, and the Center for Medical Innovation, directed by Dr. Bryan McRea.
