Without financial backing, faculty entrepreneurs with great ideas for taking a product or service to market won’t get very far.

Faz Bashi
Scientist, startup mentor and angel investor Faz Bashi wants to make sure that doesn’t happen at the University of Iowa. From 5:30-6:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 13, Bashi will deliver a free, public lecture outlining steps for securing the necessary support and money to commercialize research and ideas.

The talk will take place in Room 2117 of the UI Medical Education Research Facility, 375 Newton Road. A reception will follow in the first-floor atrium.

Because seating is limited registration for the event is encouraged. Visit https://www.eventjoy.com/e/faz-bashi-lecture-3631743?p=iowanow.

The UI Office of Research and Economic Development is sponsoring the event.

Bashi, M.D., has a research background in Immunology and Virology from the University of California-San Francisco. He is Chair of Life Science Angel's (LSA) Digital Health & Sciences Screening Committee, and Chair of the Angel Capital Association's (ACA) Life Sciences Syndication group.
