Entrepreneur in Residence Program

Entrepreneur in Residence Program

The Entrepreneurship course will require trainees to expand their thought process beyond science and basic research.  Adding the complexities of business and legal issues to science will challenge trainees to think more broadly about their research and how it may be translated.  With a better understanding of the expectations of the marketplace, trainees will be better equipped to establish robust translational research projects.  Furthermore, this interactive program will provide basic training in new technology development for a diverse audience.  Innovators and trainees interested in a career in technology development will be paired with appropriate mentors.  Contact the UNeMED office for information 402-559-2468
