If you are interested in learning about medical technology commercialization opportunities, or would like to network with experienced med-tech inventors, investors and entrepreneurs, plan to attend a special forum on Thursday, July 21, 2011 on the Sacramento campus of UC Davis. The forum, part of UC Davis’ Medical Technology Commercialization Clinic program, will include presentations by an angel investor and several med-tech teams that have successfully developed commercialization plans for their innovative technologies and concepts. The event will offer ample networking and discussion opportunities, as well as encourage each attendee to engage, learn and be challenged.
Highlights on NSF/CBET Biosensing Program. Dr. Simonian is a Program Director at NSF and Professor of Materials Engineering at Auburn University.
The academy is a five-day immersion program integrating lecture, exercises, and team projects. Biomed engineering researchers work within teams to identify, design, and validate new business opportunities. Sessions are taught by venture capitalists, angel investors, entrepreneurs and industry executives. Deadline to apply: May 20.
