RUTGERS UNIVERSITY CENTER FOR DERMAL RESEARCH
INNOVATIONS IN DERMATOLOGICAL SCIENCES - 2014
University, Industry and Government Partnerships
OCTOBER 8th, 2014
Heldrich Hotel, New Brunswick New Jersey 08901
Thought leaders from the university, industry and government sectors will gather to share their experiences with successfully partnering to translate cutting-edge dermatological research into clinical use – including successes, best-practices, and lessons learned. IDS-2014 will be people and organizations, who by collaborating, can significantly advance product innovation in dermatology and translate basic dermatological discoveries to successful products that will improve patient’s lives. This conference will also provide an opportunity for researchers from universities, industry and government to exhibit their works-in-progress and obtain feedback from their peers in an informal setting. The exhibits give attendees a forum where they can interactively learn about cutting-edge research projects, including information that may not yet have been published.
Special Announcement: For Derm 2014, we have partnered with the 12th Biennial New Jersey Symposium on Biomaterials Science scheduled for October 6th and 7th also at the Heldrich.
