Peter and I are leaving for Israel today where will be participating in and co-sponsoring a three day program for Israeli biotech startups designed to help them improved their ability to become full fledged companies. Israel is home to some of the best translational science in the world and providing companies insights to the policy and regulatory environment in the US can help enhance value and improve efficiency. The conference is entitled Health Care Technological Innovation: From Idea to Commercialization. It's co-sponsored by the Israel Life Science Industry, The International Institute for Biotechnology Entrenpreneurship, Tel Aviv University's Recanti School of Business and CMPI.
It's Peter's first trip and as for me, I get to see my son who, as some of you know, is serving in the IDF.
Here's the conference agenda:http://biomedmanagement.tau.ac.il/
