Spotlight on Entrepreneurial Educational Resources

Academic Entrepreneurship for Medical and Health Scientists​ is a free, open education, living e-book created at the University of Pennsylvania that can be used in courses, workshops, pilot grant programs, and by individuals. It is designed to facilitate the training of academic entrepreneurs (faculty, staff and students at academic institutions) to allow them to more effectively translate their new discoveries into beneficial healthcare products.

Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis Entrepreneurship for Biomedical Researchers Training Program is recruiting for the fall program of their NIH-funded Entrepreneurship for Biomedicine (E4B) training program. Free and fully online, this program is designed for pre- and post-graduate biomedical research trainees and junior faculty across the country interested in acquiring I&E skills. Apply while time and space permit!
