The Oncology and Research Tools Partnering Forum will explore how academia can collaborate with industry to advance the technologies that result in new cancer therapeutic modalities. It will also explore academic/industry collaborations to license or co-develop the research tools that can advance basic research. This AUTM Partnering Forum, held in partnership with BIOCOM and the San Diego Innovation Council, is a great opportunity for university tech transfer and licensing specialists to connect with their counterparts in business development and intellectual property from the oncology and research reagents area.
