Ep. 84

How to turn scientists into entrepreneurs?

Guest in the new episode of Leaders Talk is Nina Patrick, the Head of Innovation at the Champalimaud Center for the Unknown. Her mission is to establish an ecosystem for research to thrive outside the lab and inspire scientists in the deep tech space to think like entrepreneurs.

In this podcast, Nina provides Karsten and us with insight into the world of deep tech research. She explains how research can be commercialized and how long it takes for drugs to reach the market after their invention. She also talks about her own start-up, why she decided to give it up, and what she finds so interesting about drugs like MDMA.
