Mike McAlpine (currently at Princeton, in the process of moving to the U of Minnesota!) gave a keynote talk discussing his breakthrough research using using a combination of 3D scanning and printing technologies to enable multidimensional integration of functional electronic components with biological tissue and organs.
Thank you to Ping Yeh of StemoniX, Jon Cobb of Stratasys, and Derek Mathers of Worrell for a stimulating panel discussion with Mike and the audience. What amazing potential to improve lives. The seminar then turned to tech commercialization concepts for bringing ideas out of the lab into the marketplace, led by Toby Nord and Carla Pavone, both faculty members at the Carlson School.
