Trying to piece together a life sciences company isn't easy. This day long event helped attendees understand the challenges of starting a life sciences company and how to address them. The event featured panelists who have started Weill Cornell Medical College companies, have invested in early stage companies, and have provided legal expertise to companies. The panels focused on three areas, diagnosis/prognosis, biomedical devices, and therapeutics. The keynote lunch speaker was Dr. Kathleen Denis, Associate Vice President, Office of Technology Transfer, The Rockefeller University. The day culminated in a networking cocktail reception for guests.
