The Rice Alliance for Technology and Entrepreneurship will offer “Life Science Entrepreneurship: Roles of Physicians, Scientists and Engineers in High-Tech Startups,” a six-week certificate course starting, March 20 – April 25.

“The intended audience is primarily graduate students, postdocs, medical students, and residents, but we have had many interested faculty take the course and they are welcome to do so,” said Sarah Hein, Ph.D., a former teaching assistant for the course led by Jack Gill, Ph.D., professor in the practice of entrepreneurship at the Jones Graduate School of Business, Rice University.

The learning objectives are to provide students with a primer in life science entrepreneurship and to learn from the first-hand experiences of the speakers Gill brings to the course. The speakers include entrepreneurs, angel investors, and investors from the Houston area and beyond.

The free course will be 4-6 p.m., Tuesdays and Thursdays, at the Bioscience Research Collaborative (BRC), Rice University, which is located at the corner of University and Main St.

The deadline to register is 5 p.m. Friday, March 17. To register or for more information, visit https://sites.google.com/view/mgmt633/home
