I-Corps @ NCATS Training on ‘Scaling for Sustainability’ Starts February 2, 2024

Do you want to learn how to accelerate, scale and sustain the translation of your social science research, biomedical discoveries and health innovations into viable products, impactful services and programs? Enroll today in the I-Corps@NCATS (National Center for Advancing Translational Science) training program.

Launched in Fall 2021 by Loyola University Chicago and Chicago’s Institute for Translational Medicine, this course is based on the National Science Foundation (NSF) I-Corps and I-Corps at National Institutes for Health (NIH) Entrepreneurial Training Program. Utilizing the Business Model Canvas tool, the program encourages team science and experiential learning. Instructors take teams through the early stages of customer discovery where they can test the business model hypotheses of their innovations.

We are now accepting applications for the Spring 2024 I-Corps@NCATS training. Hybrid classes will be held both virtually on Zoom PLUS some in-person meeting opportunities. Sessions will be led by specialized instructors passionate about helping teams refine value propositions and deliver maximum impact to their target populations.

Register here.

Please contact Merly Thomas (mthomas22@luc.edu) for registration questions. She will be an informational session over Zoom (Meeting ID: 898 0892 1741) on Friday, January 19, at noon.
