There will also be multiple talks on how technology can successfully be taken from the lab through FDA approval.
Day Three: October 26th – Student NanoDay: High school classes, undergraduate and graduate students, postdocs and faculty participate in exhibits, demonstrations, tours, posters and talks throughout the University of Pennsylvania.
Day Four: October 27th – Nanovation Day: A showcase of how nanotechnology is making its way into our daily lives, while highlighting the current resources available to those trying to take their innovations and turn them into businesses.
Each of the Industry Days will include various speakers and panels on topics showcasing nano-innovation, nanovation, with a targeted expo showcase and a networking cocktail reception. There will also be an invitation only dinner held on October 24th. Conference speakers currently include: Dr. Krishna Singh, President and CEO of Holtec International; Dr. Yury Gogotsi of Drexel University’s Nanomaterials Group; Zachary Seward, Editor and Chief at Technical.ly Philly; Daniel Cabrera, CEO of BioBots; Jill Lentz, Senior Project Manager at Perlman School of Medicine; Eamon Gallagher, Program Director of the University City Science Center; and Dr. Frank Matero of the University of Pennsylvania’s Historic Preservation Group.
