Innovative Investment Models
The Atlanta Clinical & Translational Science Institute (ACTSI), led by Emory University with partners Morehouse School of Medicine and Georgia Institute of Technology, and Georgia Bio, the state’s life sciences industry association, organizes this conference annually.
This year’s conference will profile successful public-private-partnerships followed by an expert panel featuring stories of successful academic/industry partnerships and first-hand stories of commercializing new technologies and startup creation.
The conference will close with a fast-paced Shark Tank featuring faculty, student, and industry innovators presenting their technologies to investors and successful bioscience entrepreneurs and executives.
Keynote - Pablo Legorreta, Royalty Pharma, Founder & CEO
Royalty Pharma recently bought drug rights on Vertex Pharmaceuticals’ cystic fibrosis treatments from the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation in a deal believed to be the largest financial return ever made by any charitable organization working to find cures for medical disease. The profits will lead to further CF research.
