“NU Tech 2012 offers an in-depth look at the life science and biotech industries,” says Cindy Stranad, Articulon principal. “We look forward to continuing our relationship with Nagoya University and the life science community.”
To be held October 4, the goal of the roundtable is strengthening the network beyond the borders among university researchers, startups in RTP, and business representatives from major and local pharmaceutical/healthcare companies. Dr. Charles Nicolette, chief scientific officer at Argos Therapeutics, will be the keynote speaker. The half-day program begins at 8 a.m. at the North Carolina Biotechnology Center.
NU expects the networking, via the roundtable, will lead to future research collaboration/licensing opportunities between universities and industries, under which the technologies would be further developed for commercialization. Technology from Nagoya, North Carolina State University, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine will be on display and discussed.
