Brief Description: The UCSF Catalyst Awards Internship Program provides an opportunity to learn about translational research and the process of advancing academic discoveries along the translational path to commercialization and patient benefit. The internship runs parallel to the Catalyst Awards Program and allows the interns to participate in the activities of the Catalyst Awards Program, the review process, and the interactions between the academic researchers and industry experts mentoring the projects along their development. Product tracks include therapeutics, diagnostics, medical devices, digital health, and biotools.
The program will introduce the interns to entrpreneurship and the industry perspective in evaluating the potential of scientific discoveries to lead the products, including: defining the unmet medical needs being addressed; assessing commercialized potential; opportunity for intellectual property; development feasibility for early-stage ideas; and defining key miletstones on the development path. The program is of value to those interested in engaging in translational research and innovation and entrepreneurship in both the academic and industry settings.
Interns will have the opportunity to contribute to the Catalyst Award project teams and participate in the presentations and small group discussions with Catalyst industry advisors on topics related to product development and careers in industry.
Furthermore, interns will work with the Caralyst Award project teams to draft Target Product Profiles (TPPs). While creating the TPPs, interns will learn about intellectual property, competitive landscape, regulatory issues, reimbursement, and clincial trial patient design, and endpoints.
