The event highlights advances in nanoscience and explains how nanotechnology is being used and how it will impact a broad range of industries, including electronics, energy, aerospace, defense, biomedicine, robotics, chemicals, and more.
Balbus' presentation is titled "How Printed and Thin Film Electronics Technologies Will Drive Innovation in Biomedical Devices" and will highlight how the convergence of formerly disparate disciplines including nanotech, biotech, physical chemistry, enzymes, materials science, ink-jet printing, genetics, and information technology is driving real innovation in biomedical devices.
Balbus is a graduate of Massachusetts Institute of Technology with a degree in chemical engineering and has completed executive programs in strategy and finance at the University of Chicago. He has more than 25 years of business strategy and technology commercialization experience.
Balbus recently completed a major engagement with the Nanotech Institute at the University of Texas/Dallas where he assisted senior administration officers and scientists in defining technology commercialization strategy and policy. He also was actively involved in technology transfer and commercialization process development and negotiated licensing agreements with several external ventures on behalf of the university.
