Presented by: Dr. Vicky Bungay, Associate Professor, UBC School of Nursing

Room: T206, UBC School of Nursing (3rd floor of UBC Hospital)

Time: 12:00-1:00 pm

Requirements to address commercialization are becoming increasingly common in research funding applications. Drawing on her experiences in applying for infrastructure funds, Dr. Bungay will discuss the meaning of commercialization and steps taken to address it in her research program. This session will explore the challenges inherent in the commercialization trend and generate strategies to promote successful funding applications that do not detract from a research focus on health promotion.
