Academic Research Commercialization: Changing Lives, Growing Our Economy

  • 2060 Rayburn House Office Building (map)

TUESDAY,  JUNE 11, 2019

NOON – 1:30 PM


Every year, the federal government invests billions of dollars in basic research conducted at American universities. What does that research yield in benefits to the American people?

Come learn about some of the thousands of products on the market that arose from academic research, and meet two young technology companies that are working to change the world and improve our economy – one helping create blood platelets and the other developing amazing new sensors to help people, homes, and communities.  Hear how the process works to move discoveries from the lab to the marketplace.

Copies of a new report showing the significant impact this scientific research is having on jobs and economic growth across the nation will also be available.

The briefing will feature:

  • Stephen Susalka, CEO, AUTM (technology transfer)

  • Sven Karlsson, COO and Founder, Platelet BioGenesis

  • Abhishek Motayed, Founder and CEO, N5Sensors

Lunch will be provided.  This is a widely-attended event.  Co-sponsored by AUTM, whose members work to support academic research commercialization globally, and BIO, the Biotechnology Innovation Organization.
