The Georgia CTSA has partnered with Biolocity to offer the Bench2Market Talks series that was created to provide free commercialization guidance to the university research community.

We cover topics on how to take your technology from the lab to commercial success and explore market opportunities surrounding entrepreneurial and innovative ideas. Panel discussions are led by industry experts that share their insights and lessons learned through first-hand experience.

Bridging the gap from university innovation to commercialization
  • Topics designed for entrepreneurs in the life sciences
  • Panel discussions with industry experts and investors
  • Tools to communicate the potential of your research
Who Should Attend?
Open to Georgia CTSA partner university faculty, staff, graduate students, post-doc, residents, and fellows.
