A National Science Foundation program that boosts efforts to commercialize scientific research is the subject of a lecture Wednesday at the University at Buffalo.
The lecture, "Moving Ideas from Laboratory to Market," will offer details on the foundation's Innovation-Corps program, which is meant to help translate basic research into commercial products and technology.
Richard Voyles, the I-Corps program director, will participate by video conference. The UB members of the panel will include Martin Casstevens, business formation and commercialization manager for the Office of Science, Technology Transfer, and Economic Outreach, or STOR; Vipin Chaudhary, a professor of computer science and engineering; and Brian Schultz, a graduate student in chemistry.
The lecture will be held from 4 to 5 p.m. Wednesday in UB's New York State Center of Excellence in Bioinformatics and Life Sciences, 701 Ellicott St., Buffalo, on the second floor. Click here to register.
