conference on the East Coast all year."

The 5th Massachusetts Life Sciences Innovation (MALSI) Day is the biggest day for life sciences startups and innovation in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. This is a high-energy, hands-on event which brings together scientific leaders and business experts to mingle with innovators, post-docs, professors, entrepreneurs, innovators, and venture capitalists.
The Burden of proof: As scientific breakthroughs progress from the moment of discovery through development to the market, inventors and developers have to show that the technology works - they have to "Prove It!" Our conference this year will focus on how and when you have to prove your technology and what investors, regulators and payors need to understand the product's viability and efficacy.
Panel sessions will address: what data is required from the academic lab before the technology can be transferred to a company; what sort of "Proof of Concept" data is needed prior to pre-clinical work; what is required in the Clinic; and how new business models are being proved out following changes in the market.
Panels and Open Discussions will include:
Panelists and Moderators will include:
Join us for the flagship event of life sciences in Massachusetts, jointly and actively put together by all the major organizations that are involved in starting and supporting the life sciences start-up ecosystem in the Commonwealth.
