Commercialization of research: An Industry Perspective

February 20, 2017

Learn from Dr Erik Hadley, Director of Process Development at STEMCELL, about the processes that occur when developing novel research into a commercial product or venture. As part of the session, Erik will explore the contributions of different individuals, in a variety of roles, that are critical for the success of this process.

Dr Hadley is currently the Director of Process Development at STEMCELL, where he oversees the development and maintenance of the manufacturing processes used to make STEMCELL's products.  Prior to his current role, he spent nearly 6 years developing Pluripotent Stem Cell media products in the R&D Department at STEMCELL.  Erik is trained as an organic chemist and loves to practice the art and science of beer brewing in his spare time.
