Penn Today interviewed John Swartley, Associate Vice Provost and PCI’s Managing Director about the organization’s role in translating discoveries and ideas at Penn into businesses and products for societal benefit.

Swartley also expressed his gratitude to his predecessor Mike Cleare, his visionary boss Dawn Bonnell, former President Amy Gutmann, and Penn’s entire executive leadership team and Board of Trustees for their support and encouragement of innovation at Penn. Read the full article here.
