Announcing the Columbia Women Inventors Network!
This month it is our pleasure to share with you the launch of the Columbia Women Inventors Network! Columbia WIN was created to engage, encourage, and empower women inventors from Columbia’s research labs. By bringing together research faculty, students and staff from across Columbia’s campuses and schools, Columbia WIN aims to increase the number of women inventors bringing their scientific breakthroughs from the lab to the market via licenses or startups.
Columbia WIN is intended to be a networking and educational resource to engage on a variety of topics related to translational research and technology commercialization. If you are interested in joining in this discussion, hearing about future Columbia WIN events or other related events and initiatives, we encourage you to subscribe to the Columbia WIN listserv here.
In particular, please join Columbia WIN on May 24 for a panel discussion titled “Is This an Invention? Now What?”, moderated by Dr. Anjali Saqi, a faculty inventor from Columbia Medical Center. Dr. Saqi will be joined by Columbia's Chief Patent Counsel Jeff Sears, CTV's Director of Life Sciences Licensing Ofra Weinberger, and CTV licensing officer Ron Katz. Following the discussion, there will be a networking reception with drinks and appetizers from 5:30-6:30pm. Columbia University ID holders can register here.
We are also happy to welcome a class of 17 new CTV Fellows this month! Fellows are an essential part of CTV’s operations in enhancing our understanding of the commercial potential of Columbia technologies, while providing Fellows a valuable educational experience. To learn more, click here.
