Academic Entrepreneurship for Medical and Health Scientists

The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) Research Institute partnered with the University of Pennsylvania’s (Penn) Institute for Translational Medicine and Therapeutics (ITMAT) to seed fund a grassroots effort of editors, subject matter experts, and translational research students to create a free Open Education Resource that seeks to support and grow a new academic research community of Boundary Spanners. This e-book is a repository of tools, wisdom and best practice that seeks to democratize innovation regardless of where the academic researcher resides. Drs. Nalaka Gooneratne, Flaura Winston and Ms. Rachel McGarrigle contributed as editors.
