Dueling for Dollars

Advance Your Research with Private Sector Partners

A Symposium, Panel, and Networking Event



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 1:30pm - 4 pm. Since space is limited, we advice to pre-register for the event through the form above. We look forward to seeing you there!
