Event description

Description

McMaster University and MILO are excited to be hosting a Therapeutics Symposium, focused on the next generation of therapeutics being developed to address unmet clinical needs. Distinguished guests from various sectors will cover the following themes:

Partnering and Investment

There is an increasing reliance on academia and start-up companies for scientifically and/or medically innovative drugs. Downstream partners and investors will discuss the opportunities and some of the challenges of commercializing early stage discoveries.

McMaster Therapeutic Start-Ups

We will hear from the scientific founders and/or business leaders of McMaster therapeutic start-up companies including Fusion, Turnstone, Adapsyn, Triumvira and Empirica about the journey from academic discovery to commercial development.

Start-Up Support

Representatives from government and non-profit organizations will discuss how they support start-up companies and how the overall ecosystem for start-up companies can be improved.
