LARGER THAN LIFE SCIENCE: FRONT AND CENTER

Come for the people and programs. Stay for a beer. Leave with your next big breakthrough.

Larger Than Life Science is a free monthly event series open to everyone interested in building a strong support network for North Carolina’s life science and healthcare innovators.

Events are held in the atrium level of the newly renovated Chesterfield Building in downtown Durham from 4-7 p.m. the first Thursday of each month. Join for an evening of unconventional conversation.

This month’s theme: Front and Center

This month LaunchBio findd inspiration in mentorship, strategy, and new pathways to approve life-changing treatments for patients. Join to meet trailblazing women in science and medicine. Learn how to approach Phase 1 drug testing while saving time and money. Prepare your medical device for clinical trials, development and commercialization.

DISCUSSION: Begin With the End in Mind: Preparing for Your Medical Device Clinical Trial

Whether it is to support a Premarket Approval (PMA), 510(k), or post-market strategies, your clinical trial is a crucial next step in the life of your medical device. Understanding the multiple facets necessary to consider in the clinical development process will provide you with a holistic view of the road ahead, and allow for realistic short- and long-term planning for your device development and commercialization.

Join this presentation and hear from a panel of industry experts in medtech development as they discuss what to keep in mind when moving towards a medical device clinical trial.

TALK: Phase 1 and Manufacturing: Guidelines for Investigational Drugs

The FDA requires drugs to comply with current Good Manufacturing Practices, or cGMP. But there is a unique situation in which these requirements are exempt: the manufacture of Phase 1 investigational drugs. These drugs typically are used in small clinical trials with healthy patients who are being closely monitored by healthcare professionals.

Join CAI to learn how startups can proceed with Phase 1 testing in a way that may save time and money, while meeting standards for safety, a controlled environment and accurate record-keeping. Scientific teams are encouraged to attend and bring questions that relate to their own drug discovery process.

PANEL: Leading Lights: Women in Science Trailblazers

Leading lights are beacons used for safe navigation through dangerous channels. The concept applies equally to accomplished women who lend a hand to those coming up behind them, helping steer a course through the sometimes treacherous waters of the corporate world and academia.

While more women are pursuing careers in science and medicine, they remain underrepresented at the top levels of the profession. This session will tackle what it takes to develop and encourage diverse leadership, embrace culture change, and prepare for a rapidly changing world. This rock star panel will discuss their careers in science, how they became leaders, what they’ve learned along the way-as well as what what they’d like to change-and the importance of finding and being a good mentor. This session is presented in partnership with UCB’s Women in Leadership Program.
