BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- The Johnson Center for Innovation and Translational Research has set a Feb. 24 deadline for researchers at Indiana University Bloomington and interested industry researchers to submit abstracts for the third annual Bloomington Innovation Conference.
Keith Davis, director of the Johnson Center for Innovation and Translational Research, said the first two conferences attracted quality speakers from industry and the university.
"One of the major goals of the conference is to foster industry-academic collaborations in Bloomington, and the speakers from Cook Biotech, Eli Lilly and Assembly Biosciences provided tremendous insight into the untapped potential for IUB-industry partnerships," Davis said. "We also are excited to highlight the exceptional work of researchers who received funding through JCITR's Translational Research Pilot Grant Program. Since the program launched two years ago, the center has funded more than $311,000 to 11 Bloomington-based researchers and their teams."
