The offices of the Vice President for Research, Graduate School, Provost, and Faculty Affairs (School of Medicine) are pleased to offer the sixth year of this free career-development seminar series for Wayne State faculty, chairs & directors, postdoctoral trainees & senior graduate students, and administrators.

The Professional and Academic Development (PAD) series is a free career development seminar series for WSU faculty, chairs and directors, postdoctoral trainees, senior graduate students, and administrators.

The first two PAD seminars of the winter semester will focus on Technology Commercialization.

TECHNOLOGY COMMERCIALIZATION: Universities, Faculty, and SBIR/STTR: Where's the Intersection? will be held on January 8, 2013, 9 to 10:30 AM at the Margherio Conference Center in the Mazurek Education Commons on the medical campus – map.

More than $2 billion in Research and Development funding is awarded annually to U.S. small business by eleven federal agencies. Many of the businesses receiving this high-risk capital are early-stage spin-outs from universities. Biotechnology Business Consultants (BBC) will be coming to campus to present on the ins-and-outs of SBIR/STTR and how university researchers can participate.

Discussion topics will include:

  • SBIR vs STTR: How to choose
  • Possible Faculty Roles - Entrepreneur, Principal Investigator, Subcontractor, Consultant

Seminars are free, but registration is required.

We hope to see you there!
