“Industry Insight – How our Industrial Research Partners are Responding to COVID-related Challenges”

Friday, May 29, 11 a.m.

Description: Things clearly aren’t “business as usual” for UGA researchers – and our industrial research partners are also facing significant challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Join us as we talk with research leaders from two of UGA’s partner companies, Boehringer-Ingelheim Animal Health and Kimberly Clark, to learn about how their businesses are responding to disruptions caused by COVID-19. We’ll discuss the challenges they are facing and how their companies are adapting their business and research operations, including their interaction with University partners, to overcome these challenges. There will be time for audience Q&A as well.

Moderator: Crystal Leach, director, Office of Industry Collaborations

Panelists:

  • Dr. Frank Milward, head of Global Assay and Services Vaccine R&D, Boehringer Ingelheim Animal Health
