Science Shaping Our World-SHOW is an ongoing seminar and networking series that highlights cutting edge, translational, life science research and development. SHOW's mission is to provide a stage for researchers that are at the cutting edge of life science innovation and translation whereby they can share their work and discuss its future application potential with a multidisciplinary audience of science, business, and technology professionals among others.
March will kick off the new season of SHOW focused on the scientist-entrepreneur in collaboration with our new, Commercializing Technology: New Venture Creation for Life Scientists initiative. This season SHOW will highlight a variety of life science start-ups created by researchers addressing a broad spectrum of healthcare need. We will delve into how they made this transition, the challenges they faced, successes they have had, and lesson learned from failures. As healthcare costs continue to rise and unmet need grows scientist-entrepreneurs are called to take a driving role in bridging bench to bedside through entrepreneurship.
Speakers for our upcoming SHOW event include:
Fernando Albertorio, PhD: Co-Founder and CEO, Sunu
Dr. Albertorio brings a background spanning biotechnology and physics and has raised over $1 million in grant funding throughout his career. He is the co-founder of three successful organizations: Libboo, a TechStars company, the Cambridge Hackspace, a not-for-profit maker-space with over a thousand registered makers, and Sunu a wearable device company. Currently, Dr. Albertorio is the CEO of Sunu, a 2014 MassChallenge winner, the recipient of the 2014 Perkins Assistive Technology Prize, and the 2015 LATAM Concordia XCala prize.
Kristopher "Kryngle" Daly, PhD: Founder and CEO, KBioBox
Dr. Daly is a physics PhD specializing in the modeling of biological systems backed by thirty years of programming experience. His background spanning physics, biology, and computer science has afforded new insights into "old problems" providing new approaches powered by modern technology. After creation of a now patented novel genomic search engine, he founded KBioBox to solve informatic challenges in gene editing and medical diagnostics. Dr. Daly also runs a CRO providing resources to life science companies, from custom software for automation/prediction to fast medical device prototyping via raspberry PIs, Arduinos, and 3D printing.
Please join us for an amazing evening of the science, entrepreneurship, and networking. Event pre-registration is required with event sign-in beginning at 5:30 PM. Light food and refreshments will be provided.
