Making Healthcare Innovations: from Research to Market

Life Sciences Innovation

What does it mean when we say that a drug or vaccine passed their clinical trials? In this webinar, we explore how research findings in the health industry become a product that can enter the market.

Viewers will leave with:

  • A general understanding of how health research becomes a product in the market
  • Resources to help researchers during their clinical trials

This webinar was part of the University of Calgary’s #CanadianInnovationWeek programming to celebrate and inspire the next generation of innovators. It was be presented by Karen Cowan, Venture Navigator, IMPACT, Innovate Calgary.
