Education and training

We are working to build diagnostics capacity and literacy by providing both online and in-person education and training opportunities.

Bootcamp: In vitro diagnostic (IVD) product development

This bootcamp equips academics, entrepreneurs, and early-stage companies with an improved understanding of the skills, principles, and systems required for effective In Vitro Diagnostics (IVD) product development. The video series will help participants make the transition from academic and grant-based research to quality compliant product development, and learn the fundamentals for moving an IVD product from concept through development.
