Teaching methods

The course will consist of one introductory lecture to the fields of regenerative medicine and diagnostics, followed by several presentations by representatives from early-, mid-, and late-stage startup companies.

During the first half of the semester students will form teams and develop project ideas for a potential start-up company. During the second half of the semester each team is expected to prepare a scientific project description, a business plan, and a patent disclosure. At the end of the course, each team will "pitch" their start-up comapny in an oral presentation given to the rest of the class.

Assessment methods

Grades will be based on the quality of the written report and the oral presentation.
