Sponsor Spotlight: Chicago Biomedical Consortium

Research Development Brown Bag Lunch Webinars

12:30 PM - 1:30 PM America/Chicago




Chicago, IL 60612



The mission of the Chicago Biomedical Consortium (CBC) is to accelerate discovery and expand the Chicago-based life sciences ecosystem in order to transform life science research into biomedical applications, create inclusive Chicagoland opportunities and improve the health of humankind. The CBC aims to:

  • Work towards an inclusive and equitable Chicagoland life sciences landscape of institutions and industry that works for all citizens of Chicago
  • Expand collaborations to build a “One Chicago” life sciences ecosystem that is a destination for visionary biotech companies and talent
  • Provide faculty and trainees developing therapeutics the critical centralized analytics, industry validation and networks of expertise needed for translation
  • Mentor and develop a strong cadre of biomedical leaders, researchers and entrepreneurs in Chicago
  • Facilitate the development of therapeutics that will, over the long term, improve the health of the citizens of Chicago and beyond.

In support of these goals, the CBC offers several competitive award programs and networking opportunities. One program that will be highlighted in this webinar is the CBC Entrepreneurial Fellows Award program, which identifies and supports the professional development of junior life sciences researchers who are keen to develop the skills and experiences needed to move translational projects from a university lab toward commercialization and potentially into a Chicago-based biotech start-up. The program exposes Fellows to a breadth of real-world experiences across the CBC institutions and connects trainees to the Chicago biomedical community. Applications for the next cohort of Fellows will open in late March 2024, soon after the original air date of this webinar.

Faculty and postdoctoral researchers in a variety of life science disciplines will benefit from the resources presented in this webinar. Join us to learn more about the CBC!
