During the biotech IPO boom in 2000, a lot of people made money; but very few products ever made it into the hands of consumers. Research by Bentley University’s Laura McNamee and Fred Ledley credits the problem to poor business models that have a glaring gap between science and business.
Fred D. Ledley, Professor of Natural & Applied Sciences and Management, and Director of the Center for Integration of Science and Industry, was named a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). He will be recognized at the AAAS Annual Meeting in Chicago in February 2014.
In order to expand its focus to areas of public health and sustainability, the Center for Integration of Science and Industry at Bentley University has appointed two post-doctoral fellows, Andrea Ballabeni, PhD and Michael J. Walsh, PhD.
The National Biomedical Research Foundation has awarded a $1.3M grant to Bentley University to establish a Center for Integration of Science and Industry, under the direction of Dr. Fred Ledley, Professor of Natural & Applied Sciences and Management.
Bentley University welcomes two new Executives-in-Residence this fall. Michael A. Boss, PhD, MBA, and Nancy Hsiung, PhD, will collaborate on research and mentor students in Bentley’s newly established Center for Integration of Science and Industry.
