Lehigh to host bio conference

Industry and academic leaders will descend on Lehigh's campus this spring for a two-day conference on "Industry-University Partnerships in Bioscience and Biotechnology: Defining the Future."

The conference, on April 27-28, will focus on the latest strategies, practices, and structures that optimize the commercial potential of the university as a collaborator with the private sector in bioscience and biotechnology.

Among the featured speakers will be Dr. Gunter Blobel, 1999 Nobel Laureate; Dennis Yablonsky, Secretary, Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development; F. Mark Gumz, C.O.O., Olympus America; William W. Crouse, Healthcare Ventures General Partner; James R. Tanenbaum, Morrison & Foerster LLP; and Kathleen J. Shino, NIH SBIR/STTR Program Coordinator.

Partnerships between universities and industry are increasingly prominent in technology development. Innovations in licensing strategies, co-development relationships, early stage corporate formation, and financing strategies facilitate these relationships.
