Opportunity Description:

This is a certificate program offered through the Johns Hopkins Carey Business School Office of Executive Education. The program will enroll 30 academic researchers, at any stage in their career, who are motivated to solve challenges related to SUD. Participants will work individually or in teams to assess if their pharmaceutical, digital health, or medical device-related inventions can be transformed into innovations to address problems in SUDs. I4SUD combines a five-day visit to Baltimore for workshops with world-class faculty and experts, clinical site visits, and community building; asynchronous and synchronous online activities; and the development of a commercialization plan to make participants competitive for follow-on funding. The program culminates in a pitch competition with an opportunity to compete for a cash prize and receive feedback from expert panels. Participants will be awarded a certificate from the Johns Hopkins Carey Business School Office of Executive Education upon completing the program.

The program will run in Fall 2024 (September – November 2024). Applications for the 2024 cohort will open in March 2024 and close in June 2024.
