Event description

Description

Dean Kamen is an inventor, an entrepreneur, and a tireless advocate for science and technology. As the founder of DEKA Research and Development Corporation, Kamen led development of technologies for health and human mobility, including the iBOT™ mobility device, and the Segway® Human Transporter. He was awarded the National Medal of Technology in 2000 by President Clinton, and elected a member of the National Academy of Engineering in 1997.

Kamen’s talk will address the two grand challenges faced by nationwide partnership BioFabUSA: leveraging the promise of tissue engineering to meet the medical needs of wounded soldiers, and helping to reinvigorate U.S. advanced manufacturing capability. BioFabUSA was established to make practical the large-scale manufacturing of tissues and tissue-related technologies, for the benefit of existing industries and growing ones.
