2024 Innovation Showcase Pitch Challenge

Basic and translational research creates the knowledge base that enables commercial innovation in health care, driving the critical pipeline where clinical breakthroughs become deliverable as real-world products and services, including therapeutics and medical devices.  The Innovation Showcase program highlights leading innovative research and start-up concepts from our region.  Judges will include industry scientists, investors, and executives.

The 2023 Innovation Showcase featured two tracks :

·        Research Fast Pitches – High schoolers, graduate students, post-docs and research associates from Oregon and Southwest Washington present their unique research propositions, arguing the critical need for their research and the science they are developing to address the issue.  Pitches will be divided between Basic Research and Translational/Applied Research.

·        Company Pitches – includes early-stage and later-stage startups as defined by investment or revenue.  Judges will evaluate proof of concept, market strategy, and early commercialization efforts.

The 2024 Innovation Showcase competition format will be released later this spring.
