Drug Development Boot Camp
This educational one-day event will provide an overview of the drug discovery and development process, and a practical understanding of how to translate research to clinical development. Additional event and registration information is available here.
Research developed at Cleveland State University often has applications as products or services outside the boundaries of the University. Through its efforts, the TTO endeavors to inspire and nurture a culture of innovation at CSU with the ultimate goal of creating new technologies that improve society, lead to more job creation, and more revenue for the inventors, the University and the State of Ohio.
