Abstract:
On Oct. 6, 2009, the Maryland Technology Development Corporation (TEDCO) will sponsor a technology transfer and commercialization showcase for bio-imaging technologies developed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

Bio-Imaging Technology Transfer and Commercialization Showcase

Gaithersburg, MD | Posted on August 27th, 2009

The showcase will be held at NIST's campus in Gaithersburg, Md., and will feature more than 50 government-developed technologies available for licensing or use by interested individuals, small businesses and corporations.

"Discover and Commercialize Cutting Edge Bio-Imaging Technologies" is one of more than 30 technology transfer and commercialization showcases hosted by TEDCO. TEDCO, an agency of the state of Maryland, was created in 1998 to fund and foster entrepreneurship and small businesses and facilitate the transfer of knowledge and technology from the public to the private sector. TEDCO is the leading source of funding for technology transfer programs in the state of Maryland.

In addition to the more than 50 new technologies that will be showcased, the event also will feature two dozen speakers, 12 from NIST and 12 from NIH, information on laboratory facilities at NIH and NIST that are available for public use, and a tour of NIST facilities. NIST researchers will be demonstrating bio-imaging technologies, such as a passive terahertz heterodyne imager for biomedical applications and quantitative molecular sensors and imaging techniques for diagnostic detection of infectious diseases, among others.

The showcase is open to the public, but attendees must register. The cost of admission is $80 per person. Attendees who are not U.S. citizens must register by Sept. 21. U.S. citizens must register by Sept. 30. Lunch is included. For contact information, registration, or to learn more about the showcase, please visit www.marylandtedco.org.
