Lumera Corporation (NASDAQ:LMRA), a leader in the emerging field of nanotechnology, announced an interview with Lumera Chief Executive Officer, Tom Mino as the most recent installment of its 2007 Lumera Experts Podcasting Series.
Mino has helped build Lumera as a leader in light-applied nanotechnology with products serving the bioscience and communications/computing multi-billion dollar industries. As a publicly traded company since 2004, Lumera has raised more than $70 million to date.
"The Lumera Podcasting series continues to be an excellent way for people to learn about the exciting advances in nanotechnology and how it applies to all of us in our lives," said Dr. Hélène Jaillet, Lumera Director of Corporate Communications and Investor Relations. "As a company at the forefront of research and development in the bioscience and telecommunication industries, we are eager to have our CEO share his perspective among the other global experts who have participated in our podcasting series."
"To this point and time, only 20,000 of the 300,000 proteins that exist in the human body have been isolated. Because of the technology that Lumera and others in the field are developing, the next 100,000 proteins may be identified as quickly as were the first 20,000," said Mino in his podcast interview. "This acceleration will have a tremendous impact in drug discovery as the proteins that trigger cancer or diabetes in a cell or weakened heart muscles will now be discovered in a much shorter period of time and have a bigger impact on our quality of life."
Earlier this year, Lumera announced the 2007 Lumera Experts Podcast Series featuring interviews with industry leaders who are familiar with Lumera's technology and are experts in nanotechnology, bio-arrays, drug discovery, electro-optics, and wireless technologies. Podcast interviews by Dr. Niro Ramachandran, a research associate at the Harvard Institute of Proteomics led by Dr. Josh LaBaer, Dr. Larry Dalton, a Professor of Chemistry and Electrical engineering at the University of Washington and Nobel Prize Nominee, and Joseph Vallner, President and CEO of Capnia, have all been previously featured as part of the series and are currently available to download on Lumera's website.
The podcasts are available through a variety of distribution networks and can be downloaded among other places at podtech.com; Apple's iTunes, Rocky Mountain Podcasting and at Lumera's own website, http://www.lumera.com/Company/Podcasts.php .
