Welcome to the biweekly electronic newsletter from Stanford Bio-X for members of the Bio-X Corporate Forum. The following are key links to the history of Bio-X and the Clark Center (hub of Bio-X): Bio-X Timeline, CLARK CENTER @ 10X, Celebrating the Clark Center, and President John Hennessy's article calling Bio-X and the Clark Center "A Cauldron of Innovation".
Join us for our Interdisciplinary Initiatives Seed Grants Symposium!
By enabling scientists involved in technology development to work in highly collaborative ways with discovery scientists across a broad array of disciplines, the Bio-X program accelerates the pace of innovation. Bio-X is a fertile environment for visionaries, and the IIP awards give them the seed funding they need to allow high-risk ideas to germinate and grow. In this way, IIP awards have a unique purpose and profound rewards.
Please mark your calendars and register for September 12-14, 2016 for a world-class symposium on Tissue Engineering co-hosted by Stanford Bio-X and University of Sydney ADATE. Limited space available.
