The 2016 program for the 4th annual SINAInnovations Trainee Forum is highly interactive and tailored specifically for graduate and medical students, residents, and post-doctoral fellows.
The program starts with a series of breakout sessions detailing the many steps involved in bringing novel therapeutics to market, followed by a lecture from a true academic entrepreneur. This year we will host the 2nd Annual Young Innovators Pitch Competition. The day will conclude with a networking reception where trainees can meet professionals from a variety of industries and learn about available resources for entrepreneurs.
