STEMM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths and Medicine) Bootcamp, a training program designed to help early career medical researchers translate their discoveries, is well underway. Jointly administered by CTx in partnership with Biomedical Research Victoria (BioMedvic), the program was launched by the Honourable Philip Dalidakis, Minister for Small Business, Innovation and Trade, on 30 June 2016.
STEMM Bootcamp builds on the successful Molecules to Medicine (M2M) Program, curated by CTx, as an online and in-person skill development program. Participating researchers undertake short, intensive education modules and activities designed to build strength, competency and connections in research translation and commercialisation.
The program was opened for registration in September, and was kicked off in great style with a workshop that outlined the key elements and core skills required for research translation and commercialisation, which will be covered during the course.
