Interested in hands-on experience with translation and commercialization?

This hands-on workshop enables participants to work with expert program faculty and conduct case-study exercises on key aspects of translating and commercializing neurotechnology. This will be a hybrid event. Participants in the in-person workshop will be provided a stipend to cover their travel costs.

Workshop Topics and Exercises 

  • Performing a Clinical Needs Assessment

  • Developing a Business Case for a Neurotechnology

  • Building the Roadmap for the Neurotechnology

  • Thinking through a Reimbursement Strategy

  • Progressing to a First-In-Human Study

  • Applying for SBIR/STTR Funding

  • Creating and Delivering a Venture Pitch

Stay tuned for details on next year's workshop.

What Participants Said

"...I really enjoyed working with my team members in this fast paced workshop. Faculty feedback was great...the agenda was very well described..."

 

"Excellent job. Well done and keep up the encouraging words."

"One of the biggest benefits of this experience for me has been the boost in confidence -- the path to commercializing medical tech is no longer so opaque to me, and I truly believe that I can succeed at this endeavor! So much of the useful info contained in the exercises are available for later reference. Also, the experience of working with several other highly competent teammates was truly a joy. I look forward to taking on this the challenge of translational neurotech if the opportunity arises."

 

"I thought the teams composition was good as each was varied.  Keep that approach of variable backgrounds and levels of experience."

"...well done and well executed, I felt. The teams (and faculty) were very engaged and the culmination was not only interesting but also fun. I would be happy to participate in the future if this is to be repeated...the outcomes obtained from the workshop, I felt, were outstanding. It was fun, engaging and I look forward to being invited back. I’m open to other opportunities to volunteer as well..."
