Disruptive Innovation

Posted on: April 18th, 2014 by admin

From the research labs at our universities to the studios of small, private start-up companies, the Carolinas have successfully created clusters of innovation. Now, policy makers are seeking ways to help commercialize the work of researchers while ensuring a steady pipeline of talent is being trained to sustain the development of our research corridors. On this program. Dr. Dirk Brown of the University of South Carolina, Dr. John Hardin of the North Carolina Department of Commerce, Bill Mahoney of SCRA and Dr. Michael Walden of NC State University discuss the disruptive nature of successful innovators and the task of matching technologically saavy researchers with capable business leaders.


The Business of Research

Posted on: June 21st, 2013 by admin

Significant advancements in health care are under development in research labs across the Carolinas, but the work of those scientists does not always appear in the marketplace. Access to capital for research and development is not the only challenge facing the region’s research corridors. On this program, Corie Curtis of the N.C. Biotechnology Center, Bill Mahoney of SCRA and Wayne Roper of SCBIO discuss the work of connecting researchers with angel investors to turn academic labs into profit centers, plus the importance of exposing young people to the business of R&D to motivate and create future scientists.
