The Rice Alliance, in conjunction with the Smalley Institute, is proud to host its 6th Annual Nanotechnology Venture Forum on January 25, 2007 at the Jesse H. Jones Graduate School of Management at Rice University.
The forum will showcase twenty of the most promising nanotechnology start-up companies. Speakers will include leading venture capitalists, investors, and the world’s foremost experts in nanotechnology research and commercialization. Attendees will learn how nanotechnology will change our lives and shape the future of business.
There is a critical need to translate research and optical systems development to produce medical products that are robust, portable, and cost-effective. Recent progress in translational optical imaging relies on the synthesis of knowledge from many fields including fundamental optical science, medicine, chemical and biomedical engineering, and medical imaging and device technology. Combining diagnostic imaging with molecular characterization of disease is producing new trends that are sharpening perspectives; and producing practical techniques and devices that are approaching clinical application and/or commercial development.
Dr. Mauro Ferrari will deliver the State of the Alliance Address summarizing the current status of the Alliance as well as several new exciting developments, such as opportunities for centers of excellence sponsored by DARPA, upcoming workshops and seminars, and new partnerships and collaborations such as with the FDA, that will strengthen our leadership role for the advancement of nanotechnology and public health.
