System-Wide Technology Transfer Forum

Cardiovascular Disease

Hyatt Regency
Burlingame, California

May 22 , 2006

On May 22, the University of California Office of Technology Transfer hosted a forum on emerging research and specific business opportunities related to cardiovascular disease from across the UC system. The goal of this forum was to bring the venture capital community and company representatives together with leading UC administrators and faculty to better understand how to work together to license UC inventions and form companies based on UC technologies. This event included speakers from the six UC campuses doing intensive cardiovascular research.

This Web page contains the presentations of the speakers and related information. We hope you enjoyed this event and will participate in future forums.
