CLP often engages with departments, schools and programs within Northwestern University and beyond to stimulate interdisciplinary research across the interfaces of life science, engineering and physical sciences and community outreach.  We also partner with members of the Chicago-region innovation ecosystem and wider investment communities to accelerate translation of breakthrough treatments, devices and diagnostic technologies spun out of CLP.

In March, 2019 CLP partnered with Oppenheimer & Co. on ‘Biotech by the Big Lake,’ an investor conference that highlighted the translational research of six innovative and entrepreneurial CLP faculty members. A panel of biotech investors and the heads of six major biotech/ pharmaceutical companies – all led by Northwestern alumni – also participated in the program.  More than 100 people attended and many new connections were made.
