2.     Visualising 3D data – identifying the markets with the greatest need, from microscopy to drug discovery to materials, with Dr. Daniel Esteban-Ferrer of Chemistry

3.     Investigating the market need for improved cancer treatment using antibody-drug conjugate therapeutics, with Dr. Steve Walsh, Dr. Jessica Iegre & Professor David Spring of Chemistry

The course will run online at 7pm UK time on Monday evenings with a first session on March 22nd followed by weekly sessions from Monday April 26th and a final presentation event on Thursday June 24th. Approximately 4 hours of individual work are needed each week, mostly involving gathering real-world feedback from industry experts.
