Bench to Shop: A Scientific Business Development and Management Program

Innovation is a key component to research laboratories around the world, but how does a product of novel research make its way to the commercial marketplace? There are many regulatory and legal requirements that must be met to navigate this process involving scale-up of product production,  establishment of quality control and quality assurance programs, trademarking, patenting, licensing, good laboratory practices, good manufacturing practices, and much more. These concepts are not taught in most scientific training programs and many products are lost in a “valley of death” when a product makes the transition from a research concept to a candidate commercial product.  This course will provide participants with an overview of the knowledge and skills necessary to navigate this “valley of death” and take a research concept all the way to the commercial marketplace. Topics covered during this four  month online course include lessons on: developing a vision for product discovery to commercialization, developing a strategic plan of work, risk assessment, biorisk management, animal use ethics, regulations and international interactions, select agents, biocontainment, licensing, regulatory pathways, good laboratory practices, good manufacturing practices, quality control, partnership relations, business models and plans, entrepreneurship, project management, and intellectual property.

 

This online course should take three to four months to complete.
