Criteria that investors and companies use to evaluate drugs for licensing or acquisition can be different from those used by reviewers and journals for publication. In this webinar, we will discuss strategies that allow researchers to anticipate such concerns and generate the kind of data that investors appreciate. The session will help early-career researchers, engineers, and data-scientists navigate the complex process of engaging their supporters.
