entities," said Anthony Hendrickson, Ph.D., dean of
the College of Business Administration. All three disciplines -- health
sciences, law and business -- play critical roles in turning bioscience
discoveries into useful products. Yet, Hendrickson said, a failure to cross
interdisciplinary lines has been identified as one of the top obstacles to
success in bioscience entrepreneurship.
The entrepreneurship program includes two three-credit-hour courses --
one in the spring and the other in the fall -- and a six-credit-hour summer
internship with a local bioscience startup, technology-transfer office or
law firm. The two courses offer a combination of guest lecturers and
panels, classroom instruction, and interdisciplinary team projects.
This spring, four teams -- comprised of a law student, a science
student and two business students -- are exploring different markets for
selling an invention created by an Omaha vascular surgeon -- a new
compression garment material. Each team will explore a different potential
market for the product. Fifty percent of each student's grade will be
determined by final licensing or startup plans developed by their
respective teams and class presentations on those plans.
Other partners in the Creighton program include the Greater Omaha
Chamber of Commerce, bioNebraska, the Leslie Kizer Family Foundation, First
National Bank of Omaha, Booz Allen Hamilton, Blackwell Sanders Peper
Martin, and Stinson Morrison Hecker.
