Inaugural WARF Innovation Day includes CALS participants – Oct. 17

The inaugural WARF Innovation Day will take place 1:00 p.m. – 5:30 p.m. on Oct. 17 at the Discovery Building. The entire campus community is welcome to attend.

This is a new, signature event for WARF and combines quick pitches from our Accelerator Program with a national keynote speaker (Byron Reese) and the WARF Innovation Awards (annual awards for the most innovative disclosures WARF received over the past year). The technologies featured at this event are standouts in terms of commercial promise and have incredible potential to impact the market and world.

Several CALS students and faculty will be involved as quick-pitchers or finalists for the WARF Innovation Awards:

Receptor Discovery Could Neutralize Common Cold (Innovation Awards)
Ann Palmenberg (professor, Institute for Molecular Virology; Biochemistry)
Kelly Watters (assistant scientist, Institute for Molecular Virology)

Cosajaba Oil as a Growth-Promoting, Survival-Enhancing Feed Ingredient in High Value Fish Species (Quick Pitch)
Pitch by Jake Olson (assistant scientist, Animal Science) | PIs: Jake Olson and Terry Barry (senior scientist, Animal Science)
