JUNE 10 @ 7:30 AM - JUNE 11 @ 5:00 PM
This is the first AMR Action Summit on Research, Development, and Commercialization.

It is hosted by a consortium, including the NC Biotechnology Center, The British Government, RTI International, BioMerieux, BD, Agile Sciences, the British-American Business Council, and CARB-X of Boston University. NC  Biotech is pleased to work with The Special Event Company to manage this event.

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a critical global public policy priority for the US, UK, and other major G8 governments. AMR poses a catastrophic threat to the effectiveness of infection control in even the most minor of surgeries. Currently, an estimated 700,000 deaths occur from complications resulting from infections driven by drug-resistant bacteria. If unaddressed, resistant bacteria “superbugs” could dramatically increase fatalities from infections in just 20 years.

The summit will explore the issue broadly and the economic and funding challenges more specifically. The event will focus on the need for public-private partnerships to encourage new drug development.

JUNE 24 @ 9:00 AM - JUNE 27 @ 5:00 PM Free
In keeping with the mission of connecting entrepreneurial companies to high-value resources to accelerate business growth, CED is excited to announce a new program series that focuses on exploring the critical skills needed to grow and scale companies.

In a unique, modular-based format, attendees will learn alongside entrepreneurs and trusted experts through interactive, fast-paced sessions. This intentional design is meant to appeal to not only the Founders and CEOs of these companies but also their extended leadership teams so that the right resources can access the information they need to help the company grow.

Scheduled for the week of June 24th 2019, CED will feature nine unique learning opportunities around priority topics for entrepreneurs and their leadership teams. These sessions will be interactive, not lecture style, and CED intends to keep the group size small allowing expert facilitators to deliver maximum value in each session.

This series is designed for Tech & Life Science entrepreneurial companies.

DATA SCIENCE INNOVATION LAB

JUNE 24 - JUNE 28
JUNE 24 - JUNE 28



The 2019 Data Science Innovation Lab is June 24-28 at Graylyn International Conference Center in Winston-Salem, NC.

The BD2K Training Coordinating Center is organizing a Data Science Innovation Lab to foster the development of new interdisciplinary teams via a facilitated and mentored format to tackle the challenges associated with the analysis, modeling, and visualization of large-scale data sets associated with the biomedicine of rural health. More details here.

The Innovation Lab entails participation in an intensive five-day residential workshop facilitating the development of new early-career (post-doc, assistant to newly associate professor level, research and tenure track) biomedical and quantitative investigator teams that will generate multidisciplinary research programs through a real-time and iterative mentoring process. Involving around 30 participants, the Innovation Lab strives to develop new and bold approaches to address challenging questions for topics that could benefit from a fresh or divergent perspective. Prior knowledge of research at this interface is not required; rather, applicants with either quantitative or biomedical expertise who demonstrate their willingness to engage in collaborative multidisciplinary research are highly encouraged to apply.

During the Innovation Lab, professional facilitators assist the participants and accelerate the idea formulation process, while the scientific experts serve as mentors and impartial referees. Working under the guidance of these mentors, participants will form teams during the workshop to develop interdisciplinary projects to solve a data science challenge arising from a biomedical research challenge involving the collection and analysis of rural health biomedical data. The lab will include opportunities for learning about NIH and NSF funding through interaction with program officers. Teams are highly encouraged to develop proposals for submission to funding agencies after the conclusion of the workshop.
