Part 1: How to Identify an Industry Partner

Project Description

Walter Ryan, Director of Business Development at Cook Medical, shares insights into the keys to a successful research and development collaboration between industry and academia. In Part 1 (of a 3-part series) Ryan discusses ways in which academic researchers can identify appropriate industry partners. In particular, an often overlooked channel to learning more about potential partners is to build a relationship with their sales representatives who can put researchers in touch with the right technical and business contacts within the company.

Cook Medical further supports UCSF CTSI through the participation of Mr. Bruce Gingles, Cook Medical’s Vice President of Global Technology Assessment and Healthcare Policy, as an advisor in the Catalyst Awards program.
