Graduate students, post-doctoral scholars, and faculty conducting science research at UChicago are encouraged to apply for the new, non-credit course, Entrepreneurship for Science and Medicine. The goal of the course is to provide a greater understanding around what it takes to bring a research discovery or idea to market for a larger societal impact.
The class will meet every Wednesday from October 18 through November 15 from 6:00-9:00 p.m. at the Harper Center, Room C-07. Attendance is mandatory, and there is no cost to take the course. Teams or ideas are not necessary for application, though this course can serve as a precursor to or a continuation of the Polsky Center I-Corps Program. Space is limited – apply early.
If you have additional questions or would like to learn more, an info session will be hosted at the Harper Center on Wednesday, September 13 from 12:00 – 1:00 p.m. Dial in information can be found in the right side bar.
