I am very happy to announce I will be participating in the 2009 Discovery to Commercialization Conference, organized by my friends at The Nanotechnology Institute http://nanotechinstitute.org (NTI). In 2008, I spoke at the NTI Conference and I met a few of my classmates from Villanova University. It was a wonderful reunion. Dr. Anthony Green and his team have gathered a fantastic line-up for this year’s conference. The conference is at no charge to our Nanotechnology community.
