Commercialisation of medical research technologies presents many opportunities but also many challenges, some highly specific to the sector. This two-day intensive course consists of taught sessions that move from the basics to cutting edge principals, case studies and a practical workshop that will provide the tools to identify and evaluate medical research projects for their commercial potential. An understanding of the different strategies to protect the intellectual property and the optimal route to commercialisation allows participants to become highly effective at commercialising medical research. Attendees also expand their network of relevant colleagues, including frequent access to the highly experienced practitioners that lead the sessions.
