The main items you need to consider are, 'what is your product?' e.g.  a biomarker, a therapeutic, disease management tool; information; analytical methods etc; 'what is the medical need for your product'; 'what are you looking for in a collaboration with industry'; 'what can you offer the partnership' who you are'?'

Elevator Pitch Guidelines

You have a 3 min opportunity to pitch your idea to a panel of industry experts. No slides required! The panel will ask questions and provide feedback on your ideas.

Please note panel members are not under a Confidential Disclosure Agreement and therefore please do not disclose any sensitive informative e.g. novel chemical structure or target.


The main items you need to consider are:

1. Who you are? –and what is your background in this area.

2. What is your product/target? e.g.  a biomarker, a therapeutic, disease management tool; information; analytical methods, new technology etc.;

3. What is the unmet medical need for your ‘product' and how does your proposed solution meet this need?

4. What is your project’s current status?

5. What expertise are you looking for in collaboration with industry? e.g. commercialisation expertise, access to a particular technology, company pipelines.

6.  What can you offer to the collaboration? e.g. information, expertise, technology, access to patient cohorts/networks, disease models.

 

Other questions you might wish to consider are:

* Who are your competitors?

* IP – Do you have IP or intend to file.

e.g. Drug/therapeutics development

Is the pathogenesis of your disease well-understood?

Is there a good understanding of the natural history of the disease?

Are the regulatory pathways established?

Are there ‘drugable’ targets or identifiable proposed mechanisms that have been described? do you have candidate biomarkers for mechanism of action?

 

Summary

The most important thing to get across is a clear picture of the final product (e.g. a biomarker, a treatment or a diagnostic method or a disease management tool or an information processing or analytical method). Please ensure that your abstract also contains enough information for any potential partner to gauge what your product is without disclosing sensitive information

 

Note: Nearer the date of the event we will be sending our ‘pitchers’ a list of our industry guests and their areas of scientific focus which should help you gauge your industry audience.

Organizer

UCL Rare Disease Steering Committee

 

The UCL Rare Diseases Steering Committee aims to  develop and implement strategies, linking  resources across UCLP and supporting the further development of clinical and academic research.


The NIHR has made a significant investment in the NIHR Biomedical Research Centres (BRCs) across the country to drive progress on innovation and translational research in biomedicine into NHS practice.  This investment allows UCL’s three BRCs (the University College London Hospitals BRC, the Great Ormond Street Hospital /Institute Child Health BRC and the Moorfields/Institute of Ophthalmology BRC) to play a vital role in bringing expertise, facilities and capacities to lead key programmes of research into rare diseases.
