CSEN is thrilled to partner with Synbiobeta to host a panel discussion on sustainable biotech with leading start-ups in the field.
Crick Science Entrepreneur Network (CSEN):
Recently established in late 2021, CSEN works alongside the Francis Crick Translation team to promote and develop entrepreneurship within the scientific community. CSEN aims to bring together researchers at all career stages to learn about the translation and commercialisation potential of their research. CSEN events will share the experiences and journeys of founders of academic spinout companies or scientists who have transitioned to a career in innovation, venture capital or technology transfer.
