Princeton's Center for Innovation in Engineering Education will showcase emerging research with strong commercial potential at its second annual Innovation Forum from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 27, in the Friend Center Convocation Room.
At the forum, Princeton scientists and engineers will give short presentations on early-stage entrepreneurial endeavors springing from their laboratories. Among the presenters are:
- Vivek Pai, KyoungSoo Park, Larry Peterson, Marc Fiuczynski and Mark Huang, who have developed a content distribution network called CoBlitz, which can simultaneously handle large data files ranging from 10 kilobyte images to 10 gigabyte movies.
- Michael Hecht, who is researching a new way to screen compounds that could result in treatments for Alzheimer's disease.
- Kale Franz, Anthony Hoffman and Scott Howard of Princeton's Mid-Infrared Technologies for Health and Environment Center, whose company Primis Technologies is developing quantum cascade lasers for medical, environmental and security applications.
- Ivan Glesk and Paul Prucnal, who are working on a secure optical communications network for on-demand applications.
At a reception following the event, forum presenters will be on hand to answer questions about their ventures and display posters that explain their work.
The Innovation Forum is part of EntrepreneurshipWeek USA and is sponsored by the School of Engineering and Applied Science, the JumpStart New Jersey Angel Network and the University's Office of Technology Licensing. It is free and open to the public. To register, contact Stephanie Landers at firstname.lastname@example.org or (609) 258-3979.
