Innovation Forum to feature early business ventures
Posted April 4, 2008; 10:24 a.m.
About a dozen Princeton scientists and engineers will talk about their early-stage entrepreneurial ventures at an Innovation Forum from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 9, in 101 Friend Center.
Researchers will give short presentations describing commercially ripe ventures that spring from Princeton's science and engineering laboratories. Among the presenters will be Jeffry Stock, professor of molecular biology, and his brother, Gregory Stock, the chief executive officer of Signum BioSciences, a company that applies the tools of molecular biochemistry to treat diseases such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's.
At a reception following the event, forum presenters will be on hand to answer questions about their ventures and display posters that graphically explain their work.
The event is sponsored by Princeton's Center for Innovation in Engineering Education, the Jumpstart New Jersey Angel Network, the University's Office of Technology Licensing and the law firm of Morgan, Lewis & Bockius LLP.
The event is free to the public, but registration is requested. To register, contact Stephanie Landers.
