Innovations and IP in Biotech

  • NUS, T-Lab seminar room, Level 5 5A Engineering Drive 1 Singapore, 117411 Singapore (map)

Disruption is imminent in the world and innovation is the lifeline for biotech as well as healthcare sectors. We are challenged by globalization, sustainability, new diseases, epidemics, regulation and so on – this is the face of disruption. The need for accelerated disruption is crucial but this is unfortunately not the priority for investors, entrepreneurs, academics and the government. Research in academia is the starting point, but the end point is the product reaching the consumer – you and me. 

Join Dr Sandhya Sriram and Ms Jyoti Kumari for a discussion about the importance of innovation in Biotech and the value of your IP. Register for the talk here.
