NIH Funding is going down.  Competition for grants is getting even tougher.  Where else can you find funding to advance your research? Partnering with the private sector could be a great avenue for you, but where do you start?

  • Come learn at our informative and fun "Dueling for Dollars" event sponsored by the Massachusetts Biotechnology Council (MassBio)
  • Learn about the incredible private sector life sciences ecosystem in Massachusetts and the partnering resources available to you - on campus and off
  • Participate in a panel discussion / Q&A with leading industry representatives (Pharma, VC, Entrepreneurs, Foundations)
  • Watch a fun "Pitch" event where some star UMMS researchers will present their projects to the panel and then you get to vote on the best matches
  • Mingle at a networking cocktail reception with lots of potential partners


The event will take place on May 30th at 1:30 pm - 4 pm.
