The CSU I-Corps Student Teams program pairs science and engineering students with business students to investigate biotechnology commercialization pathways.
The 3-day workshop will run June 19-21, 2017, in parallel to the Biotechnology International Convention (BIO 2017). The workshop is open to early-career life science researchers from groups underrepresented in biotechnology degree programs and research organizations. Assistant professors, postdoctoral fellows, graduate students, and undergraduates from universities nationwide are eligible to participate.
CSU I-Corps Challenge Teams got out of their labs and innovation centers and went off-campus to interview customers, potential partners, life science industry advisors and mentors. Cohort #5 student teams presented Lessons Learned at the 29th annual CSU Biotechnology Symposium in early January 2017.
The CSU I-Corps Biological Sciences Site is a program of the CSU Program for Education and Research in Biotechnology (CSUPERB) and San Diego State University. Working with CSU campus and industry partners statewide, CSU I-Corps supports immersive entrepreneurship experiences for CSU students and faculty.
