Translating IP from Bench to Bedside

Are you looking for IP in life sciences but not sure how to connect with BWH or Partners and the ways to spin out a technology? Or are you a clinician who has submitted invention disclosures and IP to Partners but unsure how it goes from submission to working collaborating with a startup or industry? This panel will feature panelists who have been on both sides of the fence and a representative from Partners Innovation to talk about the ins and outs of getting IP out of the hospital and into industry.
