In partnership with STEMCELL Technologies, and supported by A*Star Central, Exploit Technologies Pte Ltd, Biotech Connection Singapore is going to bring you the exciting workshop on June 25th, 2015.
Biotechnology is becoming more expensive and riskier to finance. How could Singapore create the commercial ecosystems that draw together research and management talents, as well as investors, to ease our paths to market? Also, having the right product development strategy is critical to staying competitive amidst emerging technologies and refinements of existing products. At this workshop, we will be privileged to learn from two distinguished speakers on commercialisation solutions to galvanise our biomedical innovations:
