This educational series is truly a collaborative event and is brought to you, in part, by the Oregon Clinical & Translational Research Institute, the School of Medicine, Knight Cardiovascular Institute, the Division of Management and Technology Transfer & Business Development. Various attendees have given their feedback on INVENT via an anonymous survey. After the seminar on seeking funds, a survey participant said, “All panelists offered unique and helpful insight into the process of finding funding, [which created] a great comprehensive overview of funding sources.” INVENT also provides lasting networking opportunities and attendees and speakers are encouraged to stay and connect after the event.
