Please join us for an upcoming lunch and learn event to hear about an evolved approach to business and science that the NSF, NIH, and other federal agencies have embraced.

The Innovation Corps program (I-Corps) is offered to academic researchers and startups around the nation to increase the application of federally sponsored research, but also benefits educational and funding outcomes for students and faculty. 

Lunch will be provided

Hear from UConn Health’s Linda Shapiro, Director, Center for Vascular Biology and Investor/Entrepreneur Barry Schweitzer about the value of the I-Corps program for academic researchers.  

Students, faculty, and postdocs are encouraged to attend.
