Novartis Open Framework Symposium , Jan 30, 2PM

The Novartis Open Framework symposia are designed to stimulate discussions within the Boston community about the academia- industry interface, and how to optimize interactions between these environments in order to advance science and impact health. This session will focus on Approaches to Fostering Applied Innovation, and is a sequel to the 2016 symposium on the Role of Academia-Industry Partnerships in Fostering Innovation.

 This year, speakers and panelists will be Mary Tolikas (Operations Director, Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University), Bruce Booth (Partner, Atlas Venture), and Jay Bradner (President, Novartis Institutes for BioMedical Research).

 The speakers will present their experiences fostering applied innovation, and steering science towards utility and impact in healthcare. The presentations will be followed by a panel discussion; we encourage you to join in the panel with questions and comments, and to continue the discussion at the reception afterwards.

 This event is open to the public and free.
