Multidisciplinary research institutes are naturals for partnering with private industry to commercialize discoveries from academia. They can provide a single point of contact for biotechnology research across departments, and sometimes universities. Most universities interface with industry when technologies are handed off to a company in formal tech transfer arrangements, but several research institutes now work in parallel with companies along the product development pipeline. This panel will explore three models of universities partnering with industry to apply their scientific pursuits to pharmaceutical and biotechnology challenges, discussing pros, cons, and future directions.

Key Takeaways:

  • Explore three examples of university-industry partnerships
  • Describe ways to design a partnership based on your organization’s goals and strengths
  • Discuss untapped opportunities for partnerships between academia and industry
