The Generation & Commercialization of Innovation: Who is in the Room/Lab with Fiona Murray
With an impressive pedigree of academic credentials from a BA in Chemistry at Oxford, to a PhD in applied science at Harvard, Professor Murray is well-positioned to focus on the actual role of science as the co-Director of MIT's Innovation Initiative. She brings substance, sensitivity, and experience to help us understand the critical roles of science and innovation. Her presentation will address the need to be working across sectors, across disciplines, and the compelling need to open more seats at the table (bench...).
Whether within universities like MIT, or at small risk-taking start-ups, the critical future is in innovation. Her work begins with students but also helps guide and identify new and emerging opportunities in the private sector including new work in impact investing and the role of VCs in creating our future. And of course, who is in the room/lab!
