April 4, 2017
4:00 PM - 6:00 PM
Vagelos Education Center

Precision Medicine Initiative at Columbia University was host to the inaugural Life Science Entrepreneurship seminar series. The series consisted of 4 classes, each centered around a case study exploring best practices among industry leaders. 

The objective of the seminar series was to expose graduate students and young faculty from the life science disciplines to the entrepreneurial world. The hope was that the seminar series informed and inspired the participants to consider careers in biotechnology.  The audience included graduate students, postdocs and young faculty from the life science disciplines and related faculties at the University.

This second lecture in the Columbia Precision Medicine Initiative, Life Science Entrepreneurship seminar series, features a discussion with distinguished panelists Tom Maniatis, PhD, (Director, Columbia Precision Medicine Initiative), Charles Zuker, PhD, (Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biophysics, CUMC), and Tony Evnin (Partner, Venrock). The panel, moderated by Tig Conger, MBA (Heritage Partners), cover topics of Basic Biology, Clinical Application and Pre-Clinical Development, and Intellectual Property.
