Event Date: Wednesday, May 18th, 2022; 4:00 – 5:00 pm
This event is hybrid, and will be taking place on Zoom, as well as in the Leslie Dan Faculty of Pharmacy Building in Room 850.
During this session our panelists will discuss early activities that researchers should engage to accelerate innovation into technology development. Programs from Health Innovation Hub (H2I), University of Toronto Early-Stage Technology (UTEST) and Creative Destruction Lab (CDL) will be introduced and followed by a discussion panel. You will learn from real-world examples about where to start and how to build a technology development plan to accelerate your path towards successful fundraising and venture formation in academic settings. This session will provide insight on what to expect from an incubator or accelerator at UofT and how to gain an access to coaching, professionals-in-residence, and investors. This session aims to stimulate commercial thinking during research and discovery phase for everyone interested in drug, device and platform development at UofT.
The goal of PRiME’s Jump Start series is to provide a comprehensive look into the essential steps involved in development of pre-clinical drugs, devices, and platform technologies. In the series we engage with experts to discuss important considerations to ensure success at each step of the development process.
These workshops are open to all Trainees and Principal Investigators at UofT.
