Recorded Events

The Innovation Center hosts many events throughout the year, but sometimes scheduling conflicts or poor weather can prevent people from attending in person. Luckily, we record many of our events. If you are unable to attend an event, peruse the video list below to see if a recording of it exists. If it does, you can watch the recording at your convenience. 

Medical Entrepreneur Speaker Series

The purpose of the series is to help doctors, students, researchers, and entrepreneurs more deeply understand the multi-faceted nature of innovation and commercialization in healthcare. Although business and entrepreneurship are a significant part of this series, it is also about how healthcare products and services are brought to the market to improve patients’ lives.
