This workshop, hosted by ITM’s partner MATTER, is for entrepreneurs who are looking to collaborate with an academic medical center to provide a proof-of-concept, demonstrate product efficacy, or collect data for a pilot project. The ITM’s Associate Director, Sam Volchenboum, MD, PhD, MS, will provide insights into how to navigate the process, including determining the kind of relationship to seek, the types of data that are available, the right contacts to make, and how best to approach academic institutions and foster relationships with academic researchers. He’ll also share his experience choosing and engaging with relevant stakeholders, taking into consideration privacy and security concerns, the basics of informed consent, and institutional review boards. Come learn how to ensure a successful collaboration, and also how to leverage it.
