White House Inter-Agency Lab-to-Market Summit: Recommendations from the National Expert Panel
On May 20, 2013, the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI) convened the Lab-to-Market Summit. They gathered a panel of 20 national non-government experts to examine innovative lab-to-market programs with the aim of identifying possible synergies as well as underlying challenges to these and other federal commercialization programs. About 60 federal agency representatives were involved as presenters and observers. Five representative agency programs designed to bridge the gap between the lab and the market were presented to the panel.
