NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Tulane University has announced a new program offering biotech executives, venture capitalists and entrepreneurs a temporary home base when they visit New Orleans.
In a Monday news release, Tulane touts its new In-Residence Immersion Program as a way to give visitors from larger cities a way to learn about the New Orleans research community — and opportunities for partnerships. The university says it will put visitors steps away from labs, clinics and classrooms throughout its health sciences campus.
The space can be used for a day, or for a few weeks.
The university says the program could be especially attractive for startups and entrepreneurs considering relocation or exploring lower-cost markets for operating clinical trials.
