System-Wide Technology Transfer Forum

Cancer Initiatives at UC

Hyatt Regency
Burlingame, California

November 3 , 2005

On November 3rd, 2005, the University of California Office of Technology Transfer hosted a forum on emerging research and specific business opportunities related to cancer 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 major UC cancer centers.

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