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 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.
