Supported by a grant from The Blavatnik Family Foundation, the Yale Life Sciences Pitchfest is an annual event that includes 5-minute pitches followed by a Q&A with a panel of judges, networking, and awards. Selected participants are invited to pitch their projects for additional Blavatnik funding.
