From bench to bedside; a product's journey from university project through industry, to the patient

SHIL will be attending the event in a delegate capacity.

As part of the Dundee Interdisciplinary Innovation Forum events and School of Medicine seminar series, Imran Farid, Executive Account Director of GE Healthcare, Frederick Perry, Senior Research Director for Europe at GE Healthcare and Nigel McLean, Technology Transfer Manager at University of Dundee Research & Innovation Services will be giving an insight into what it takes to bring an idea from a university or hospital to market for use in patient care.

Nigel, Frederick and Imran will take you along the journey that an idea for a new IVD, medical device, pharmaceutical travels to become a product ready for use to diagnose and treat patients; evaluation, strategic fit, funding, technical/clinical/market/regulatory development. Discussions will start at evaluating and protecting the idea within the university/NHS, through to what industry look for in a future product, and how industry develop this to a healthcare/patient ready product.

The event will take place at the Tannis Drummond Lecture Theatre, Level 5, Ninewells Hospital and Medical School.
