Healthcare Market Research

March 12, 2020

Great work in life science research does not always lead to better healthcare, often because of a lack of understanding the market. The quality of market research, similar to the quality of laboratory research, hinges on asking the best questions and carefully evaluating the answers.

Effective Delegation

March 19, 2020

Effective delegation is a critical leadership skill. As a leader, you will have more time to complete work that only you can actually do. Your team members will be appropriately challenged, and more engaged in their work, and you will ultimately achieve more results through the efforts of your group. Join the B-BIC Skills Development Center for an interactive workshop in which participants will learn the principles and practice of effective delegation.

Development of Therapeutics: Building on the Past and Defining the Future

March 26, 2020

This case-based workshop leverages the history of oral anticoagulants to explore the evolution of the therapeutic development. Starting with the role of serendipity in the early days of drug discovery, we move on to the world of rational drug design and how the age of precision medicine will further transform the process of providing the best possible treatment for each individual patient.

 

Managing Yourself Before Managing Others

April 02, 2020

This workshop is intended for academic scientists who are anticipating a transition or have already taken on new roles that require additional skill sets. 

Strategies and Challenges in Clinical Development

April 09, 2020

In collaboration with Mark Goldberg, we have created an interactive, case-based workshop to help participants better understand the process of creating a clinical development strategy, and manage in the face of unexpected challenges. Participants will actively make decisions about the trajectory of a specific clinical development project, and will have pieces of Mark's real life journey revealed step by step through the case discussion.

The Art and Science of Slide Design

April 22, 2020

Your slides, and how you use them, can have a tremendous impact on whether your message is communicated or lost -- whether your audience is engaged or distracted. This workshop will first illustrate a few simple elements to improve your slide design, content flow and data visualization in order to maximize the impact of your next presentation.

Development of Therapeutics: Building on the Past and Defining the Future

April 30, 2020

This case-based workshop leverages the history of oral anticoagulants to explore the evolution of the therapeutic development. Starting with the role of serendipity in the early days of drug discovery, we move on to the world of rational drug design and how the age of precision medicine will further transform the process of providing the best possible treatment for each individual patient.

 

Healthcare Market Research

A Pitch for Any Occasion

May 14, 2020

A great pitch hooks your audience and keeps them engaged throughout. This does not happen by accident. Experienced speakers prepare, in large part, by researching their audience and crafting the pitch with the end goal in mind.

In this workshop, participants will collaborate in small groups to craft a 5-slide pitch deck with an audience and goal we provide. After applying the pitch design principles, participants will craft a pitch about their own work.

Managing Yourself Before Managing Others

May 21, 2020

This workshop is intended for academic scientists who are anticipating a transition or have already taken on new roles that require additional skill sets. 

Project Management for Success in Scientific Research

May 28, 2020

Clinicians and investigators will have the opportunity to build a high-level project plan for their own projects as well as receive feedback on the plan from both expert instructors and peers.

Effective Delegation

Technology Valuation

June 04, 2020

Being able to communicate the value of your idea is critical to build interest, recruit a team, and most importantly, attract funding for your project. Revenue modeling and forecasting is far from an exact science, and the real benefit is derived from gaining a better understanding of the commercial landscape and explaining the assumptions intrinsic to your model.
