The “Guppy Tank Translational Science Pitch Competition” will feature four outstanding trainee-level finalists selected to pitch the commercial value of their research and compete for prizes before a live audience of Experimental Biology attendees.
Attendees to this new, one-of-a-kind event can expect to:
- Learn how to deliver their own effective translational pitch through an introductory lecture by Dr. Sanjay Mistry (Head of JLABS @ San Diego).
- Watch finalists deliver their pitches and navigate grilling questions and scoring from a panel of judges with decades of collective industry expertise.
- Vote in a live poll to select the “People’s Choice” Awardee.
