The newly reorganized Partners Innovation is a cohesive, coordinated group of 75 seasoned professional, engaging researchers, thought-leaders, entrepreneurs and industry leaders. Its mission is to advance the large number of medical innovations discovered by Partners HealthCare researchers and to bring solutions to patients by facilitating industrial collaborations, start-up, licensing, strategic alliances and intellectual property management. In addition, Partners has an Innovation Fund established in 2007, which was launched with a total commitment of $35 million from Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Massachusetts General Hospital. It addresses Partners HealthCare's unmet need for funding of early-stage technology to drive improved medical care for patients. The goal of the fund is to provide the necessary support to advance innovations in medical systems, therapy, drugs and medical devices.
SBANE has enlisted the talented leaders of Partners HealthCare Innovation to share their contemporary perspective on how they profile and nurture their cutting edge technologies into the healthcare commercial marketplace.
