BioMedETC 2017: Revolution


BioMedETC – Biomedical Science in Entrepreneurship, Technology and Commercialisation is BioMedKL’s flagship event.

Aiming to offer beyond “conventional scientific event”, BioMedETC offers insights from revolutionary experts in the field of communication & entrepreneurship, new thought process for problem solving and know-how in commercialisation for science discoveries. BioMedKL believes these are skills and learning opportunities that do not fall under normal academic syllabus. Hence, this event is dubbed the acronym ETC which also means “et cetera” or "and other things" biomedical science researchers should know.

We are now gathering the experts in communication, ideation and commercialisation to come forth and speak to biomedical scientists who are keen in learning new skills, networking with other scientists and wanting to make a science breakthrough.

For the first time ever, we are offering opportunities for scientists to showcase their scientific business pitch via Rapid Fire 3-minute Thesis Competition.
