Informing Innovation 2019

Informing Innovation details

To bring a solution from bench to bedside, life science companies have myriad information needs at every stage of development. From market projections for specific therapeutic areas, to competitive intelligence about competitors' research programs, to scientific literature, critical information can be expensive to access and time-consuming to search. Time spent hunting for information is time spent away from developing technologies that can heal and feed the world.

At Informing Innovation 2019, we'll help you get up to speed in life science market research techniques; learn the landscape of scientific literature, patent and business information resources; and equip you with sources and strategies for finding the data you need to innovate. You will also be able to connect with content providers to learn more about the industry tools and resources that are essential to discovery.

    Informing Innovation 2019 is hosted by Life Science Intelligence (LSI) at NCBiotech. LSI specializes in the intersection of bioscience innovation and business. By delivering targeted market and scientific insight, we connect entrepreneurs and companies with the analysis and resources needed to inform strategic decisions.
