Innovator Training Scheme: Commercialisation Process to Clinical Impact


Part of the NIHR Manchester Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) and Translation Manchester Innovator Training Programme.

Manchester NIHR Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) and Translation Manchester Innovator Training Programme – ‘Commercialisation Process to Clinical Impact’

The aim of this programme is to: equip and inspire researchers, to explore and develop routes to clinical impact with industry partners, to innovate and exploit their research to drive patient benefits.

Learning objectives:

• Some innovations cannot be freely disseminated and need a commercial product to be adopted for use in patient care – it’s not just about making a profit

• Commercialisation routes: direct sale, licensing or spinout and why route was chosen for each case

• Be aware of: thinking of IP at all stages; confidentiality; ways of protecting IP; grant funding terms

• Understand role of tech transfer office and how to work with them

• Benefits to researchers/clinicians from commercialisation

Audience: Staff and students engaged in or supporting all P4 medicine research affiliated with the BRC, CRF, The University of Manchester, and/or across Health Innovation Manchester and the Translation Manchester pipeline.

For those unable to attend, a video recording of the event will be made available after the event via the BRC and Translation Manchester website.
