Illinois is a hotbed of nanotech research. Will that result in future jobs? For the local economy to benefit, nano research must be commercialized into marketable products. "There's a commercialization gap," says author and entrepreneur Daniel Ratner.
Ratner and his co-author father, Northwestern professor Mark Ratner, spoke last week at the Brinks Hofer law firm. Bill Prendergast, the firm's nanotech expert, hosted the event as a tune-up for Nano Commerce 2005, the trade show that hits McCormick Place Nov. 1-3.
